Saskatoon Fire News Releases



Saskatoon is experiencing a sneak peek at winter this weekend. This weather combined with the temperature drop has brought on winter driving conditions for road users, including icy roads and blowing snow. City crews are using a combination of salt and sand to add traction to freeways and high-traffic roadways. 

Drivers should slow down and use caution during their commute as snow and ice may cause bridge decks, freeway ramps, overpasses and high-traffic intersections to be icy.
