With temperatures hovering around the zero degree mark, officials want everyone to take the cold weather seriously. Frostbite and hypothermia can happen quickly, so look after your fellow neighbor.
Police say this is especially the case with the elderly, who often become the first victims of dangerously low temperatures.
"If there's anything you can do be it," said Sgt. Jason Cullum. "Pick up some things while you're at the store. Make sure they have any supplies they need if the power goes out. It's important to do that."
Sgt. Cullum says officers have made a few welfare checks for people who might be stuck in the cold.
