With Prince Albert facing bone-chilling temperatures over the weekend, Parkland Ambulance Paramedics are reminding residents to take necessary safety precautions.
Aside from bundling up in warm clothing, residents should try to stop for stranded motorists and call emergency services if they see someone in distress.
Paramedics also suggest that residents should begin thinking now about removing snow from around their houses before the spring melting occurs. Ideally, snow should be removed at least three to six feet away from buildings in order to prevent flooding.
Anyone planning to climb onto a roof should wear a proper safety harness, as the buildup of winter ice can create a significant falling hazard.
Finally, good footwear can help prevent slips and falls when walking around the city.
