Other the weekend, Parkland Ambulance paramedics responded to 57 incidents, of which perhaps surprisingly none have had to do with incidents of cold exposure.

“Stay warm,” director of public affairs Lyle Karasiuk urged in a weekend round-up release. “Please stay indoors as Prince Albert and area continues to experience cold temperatures accompanied by high wind chills.”

Residents are also asked to check on their neighbours during this cold spell -- particularly seniors, those alone, and those without transportation.

“Thankfully school is not a factor on Monday, but those headed to work need to travel with care,” Karasiuk notes.

Karasiuk also notes numerous “sick” calls coming in to Parkland Ambulance, of which some might be flu-related, “though a diagnosis must be always made by a physician.”

Karasiuk urges those who have not received a flu shot to visit their family doctor or contact public Health. People are also urged to wash their hands frequently, cover their mouths while coughing, and sneezing into one’s arm rather than one’s hand to prevent the flu’s further spread.

“If you are sick, stay home and get plenty of rest.”
