With Environment Canada advising of wind chills nearing -40 today, the City reminds residents to exercise extreme caution when heading outdoors. A few safety tips to keep in mind:
- Cover up. Frostbite can occur within minutes on exposed skin.
- Do not leave your pets outside. If it's too cold for you, it's too cold for them.
- North Battleford Fire Department reminds you if you are adding heat sources inside your residence, like a space heater, plug it directly into a wall outlet and not into an extension cord or power bar. Turn it off before going to sleep. This is a fire hazard.
- Check on your friends & family to make sure they are safe. Look after one another.
