Channel spoke with doctors from Hartford Hospital on Thursday morning on how to stay safe during Blizzard Brody.
Hartford Hospital was full-staffed on Thursday to deal with injuries from Blizzard Brody. They are also trained to deal with the storm-related injuries.
"We are set for the weather," Dr. Ken Robinson with Hartford Hospital said.
Robinson said people should avoid the risk of driving on the roads due to the slipping and sliding possibilities. Robinson added people should let people do their job.
Last week, Robinson said he had a patient who was injured and could not get to emergency crews because he did not have a fully-charged cell phone.
"Whenever venturing out, you should have a fully-charged cell phone, a shovel and something to keep you warm, blanket or a sleeping bag," Robinson said.
With the bitter cold expected this weekend, Robinson said to layer and keep yourself covered when outside on Saturday and Sunday.
"Remember when temperatures get closer to zero, the chances of frostbite increase," Robinson said.

The temp is around 19 degrees around 10 a.m.
