Extreme cold temperatures create an elevated risk to health such as frostbite and hypothermia, which has Moose Jaw Police on high alert. 

Seargent Kevin Pilsworth of the Moose Jaw Police says officers are being urged to be on the lookout for people who may be in distress while outside in this weather. "Our officers are keen to stop to make sure everybody is okay," he said. "We do take some extra steps and are extra diligent with people when the weather gets like this."

Seargent Pillsworth also wants to remind people to please have their cell phones on them at all times and to wear proper clothing. He says it's not uncommon to find someone who is not properly dressed for the weather when an officer responds to a vehicle crash or mechanical issue."Far too often they'll be wearing very poor clothing for the weather conditions. So we try and get people safely off the road and we'll take them to a safe location if we have to," he said. 

Environment Canada says these extreme temperatures should start to leave our province by Monday.
