Be Winter Ready 2023-2024

7 December 2023


The Government ‘Be Winter Ready’ 2023 – 2024 Information Campaign was launched on 18 October 2023.

The campaign was jointly launched by Micheál Martin T.D, Tánaiste and Minister for Defence, and Jack Chambers T.D Minister of State Transport with responsibility for International and Road Transport and Logistics.

The 2023 – 2024 campaign focuses on the important message of “Road Safety – Plan, Prepare, Be Aware”. An information leaflet containing Road Safety advice and guidance on driving during the winter period has been published to support this year’s campaign. More information can be found in the campaign Leaflet and Booklet, which are available below.

The campaign highlights the ‘whole-of-government’ approach being taken to winter preparations. It aims to provide advice and information to the general public on issues which may affect them during the winter months in Ireland, such as how to prepare for severe weather, where to source information, and personal actions that can be taken in order to become more resilient in their winter readiness.

Visit the Be Winter Ready website for more information and advice on how to prepare for winter. You will also find a number of targeted leaflets on themes such as Guidance on Flooding, Preparing Businesses and Farms for Severe Weather, and Healthcare advice.

You can also find sources for up-to-date information on transport services, road conditions and traffic updates during severe weather on our Department of Transport Be Winter Ready/Contact Information page.
