COLD ACCLIMATIZATION
 
During exercise in the cold, the body usually produces enough heat to maintain its normal temperature. As Soldiers become fatigued, however, they slow down and their body produces less heat. Two types of cold injury conditions may occur due to prolonged exposure and/or loss of core temperature. Soldiers and PRT leaders must be aware of the signs and symptoms of cold injuries and their severities to assess Soldiers who may be at risk and to provide appropriate treatment immediately. If any of the following symptoms (frostbite or hypothermia) are experienced, immediately stop physical activity and seek treatment and/or medical attention.
