The city of Regina is prepared to deal with the massive snowfall.
A system coming in from Colorado is bringing around a foot of snow into the southeast portion of Saskatchewan, including here in Regina.
Chris Warren, Winter Maintenance Manager for the city of Regina says the city has all it’s resources ready to handle the storm.
“As per winter maintenance policy, we’re putting our steps in place to make sure we’re handling the situation if it arises,” he said.
Warren says the city’s crew can and will be deployed if this situation worsens. When that happens, he says people, regardless of whether they are driving or not, need to be extremely aware and conscious of their surroundings.
“It’s definitely recommended that everyone use extra caution,” he said. “Slow down on the road ways.”
Warren says the city typically launches it’s Storm Response during times like this, deploying ice patrol trucks and graders to keep the roads safe and free of ice and any potential danger.
