Clear sidewalks: Please help make walking in your neighborhood safe during winter weather - help clear the sidewalks!

Clear storm drains: Heavy snow can block storm drains and cover up other blocking debris. Please help keep storm drains flowing freely to reduce the risk of local flooding.

Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning: Please remember! You cannot use generators or gas or charcoal grills inside the house. Carbon monoxide levels build quickly and are a silent killer.

If temperatures fall below freezing protect your pipes from freezing by wrapping outdoor and indoor pipes with cloth, bags, or other insulating materials.
