Moose Jaw, SK  – The City of Moose Jaw advises residents to exercise extreme caution during today’s (June 5) windstorm.

With wind gusts reaching up to 90 km/h, the City has received numerous reports of fallen trees, branches, and other debris across Moose Jaw. Crews are actively addressing these issues and are prioritizing based on potential risks to people and property, with residential needs being addressed before those of parks and open spaces.

When the winds have subsided and it is safe to do so, residents can assist by cleaning up small debris on boulevards, park spaces, and back lanes adjacent to their residences and businesses.

If the debris is too large or still attached to a City tree, City staff are available to handle these requests on a priority basis. We encourage residents to use the “Report an Issue” feature on Moosejaw.ca or the free City app to report any clean-up that requires City assistance. Including pictures with your requests is strongly encouraged as it will help our team prioritize those requests. Tree service requests can also be called into the Parks and Recreation Department at (306) 694-4447.
