    Medical readiness also includes prevention for this upcoming cold/influenza season. Prior planning and adequate training are essential to minimizing cold weather injuries.

  • Cold weather injuries are preventable with command vigilance and application of risk management to ensure leaders and Soldiers are aware of the risks and potentially debilitating effects of cold weather conditions.
  • The flu is unpredictable and its severity can vary widely from season to season. Annually in the United States, 40 million cases of flu are reported resulting and as many as 750,000 hospitalizations due to serious complications. The best defenses against influenza are receiving the vaccination and practicing personal hygiene measures.
