  • Clear fire hydrants in your area. 
  • Remove ice and snow from steps, sidewalks and walkways. •Keep cell phones and other electronic devices charged. 
  • Have a battery-operated radio and a flashlight ready in case of a power outage. 
  • When shoveling snow, dress warm in layers and avoid over-exertion. 
  • If you must drive, make sure your tires are properly inflated and windshield wipers are working. 
  • Keep your pets indoors. 
  • Check on elderly and infirmed friends and neighbors. 
  • Listen to the local radio or television news for weather updates and emergency notifications. 
  • When using a generator, place it outdoors and follow all manufacturers’ safety precautions. Residents should call 451-TOWN to report snow related issues.
