Many people hit the ground running once the power went out on Tuesday morning. 

That includes Deputy Fire Cheif, Mike Russel who is also in charge of the Emergency Measures Organization in Moose Jaw, who come to residents aid in situations like the one we saw this week. 

He said that this week served as a perfect reminder to residents to be prepared for anything, much like the message they share ever May during Emergency Preparedness Week. 

"Have a kit ready for 72-hours and plan for 72-hours, now having said that what we want people to know is as a city and as a province we were taking very quick action to make sure that if this was a prolonged incident that we would have measures in place," explained Russel. 

He mentioned that people also don't have to go far to hear important messages likes what's going on, what should they do, and where could they go.

"We utilize local radio like [Golden West Radio], which we're very fortunate to have, as well as social media like Twitter, Facebook, as well as SaskAlert would be putting stuff out. If people pay attention to social media they'll be ahead of the game in knowing what to do and where to go."

If you're putting your emergency kit together this week there are a few things Deputy Cheif Russel would like to remind you to pack.

"Having that battery operated radio, having those flashlights, first aid kits on hand, crank radios as well or flashlights. Making sure you have food that won't spoil. The key thing for the difference between what would happen in the middle of summer as opposed to the middle of winter is not bringing in any type of fuel fired appliance or anything that's going to provide carbon monoxide and be dangerous in the house."

He also noted that officials spent the day checking in with vulnerable residents, calling the hospital to make sure they had enough fuel and also reached out to SaskPolytechnic to see, if needed, they could provide shelter to residents if the situation worsened.
