The bitter wind is making it colder than it has been in years.
Paramedics say your exposed skin can freeze in just a couple minutes of being outside.
They are already gearing up for people who are outside longer than they should be.
"We carry a lot of blankets in our trucks. Our trucks are always in garages and if they're not, they're always running, so we can always heat that patient compartment up. so we always keep it warm in there." Said paramedic for Rural/Metro Ambulance, Katie Kruger.
Those trucks are fully stocked in case anyone falls victim to the cold. But, some people don't have much of a choice.
Ethan Dickson delivers pizza for Boss' Pizza & Chicken said, "Bundle up and stay warm. You have to do what you have to do in this cold weather.
He added the worst part is waiting for people at the door. He has been calling them ahead of time to let them know he is close.
Paramedic Katie Kruger says the best thing you can do: is bundle up.
"If you have to go outside, definitely wear your mittens or your gloves and a hat, if you need to wear a scarf and definitely do the layers the layers are going to help you the most. And it'll keep that cold harsh wind away from you."
