Winter Awareness – It’s not too late to prepare

The following is a message from the City of Warman’s Emergency Measures Organization (EMO) Coordinator Adrian Waskewitch:

Before the storm:

  • Prepare, check, and resupply your home readiness kits. Most home readiness items are already in your home or accessible at your local store (see link below).
  • Pay attention to weather forecasts, warnings/watches, and radar imagery for incoming weather systems (see link below).
  • Sign-up to VoyentAlert! to receive accurate and up-to-date information if weather systems impact the City of Warman (see link below).
  • Winterize your home by covering drafts with plastic; insulating walls and attics; applying weather stripping to windows and doors.
  • Prepare a winter survival kit for your vehicle.

 During the storm:

  • If you must travel, check highway conditions. Wait until highway conditions improve before you commute (see link below).
  • If you become stuck or stranded while travelling, remain in your vehicle.
  • If power goes out, look to SaskPower’s outage updates (see link below).

After the storm:

  • Continue to monitor weather forecasts, highway conditions, and community updates if impacts occur.
  • Clear built-up snow from your home’s exhaust and ventilation ports.
  • Assist physically vulnerable family or neighbours with snow clearing.
