EMERGENCY SAFETY STATEMENT REGARDING THE MARCH 7-8 SNOW STORM

The following information contains important safety guidelines to follow while we are recovering from this recent weather event.

  • PLEASE STAY INDOORS Ice and tree limbs continue to fall even well after the storm has ended. Only venture outdoors if truly necessary.
  • If you have to go outside, stay clear of all leaning or hanging tree limbs and powerlines.
  • Stay away from downed utility wires. Always assume a downed power line is live.
  • If a traffic light is out, treat the intersection as a four-way stop.
  • Take recommended safety precautions when using space heaters, a fireplace, or a woodstove to heat your home. Keep a fire extinguisher handy.
  • Use generators and grills outside because their fumes contain carbon monoxide. Make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are working as it is a silent, odorless, killer.
  • If possible, use flashlights instead of candles. If you must use candles, place them in safe holders away from anything that could catch fire. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • During hot weather, use ice to help keep food cold. During cold weather, keep food cold outside in a secure location safe from animals.
  • If phone lines are down, use social media or texting to let others know you are okay.
  • Unplug sensitive electronics to avoid power surges when power is restored.
  • Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed. An unopened refrigerator will keep food cold for about four hours. A full freezer will keep the temperature for about 48 hours.
  • Be a good neighbor. Check on family, friends, and neighbors, especially the elderly, those who live alone, those with medical conditions, and those who may need additional assistance.
  • Never attempt to touch or move wires and keep children and pets away from downed lines. Downed or hanging electrical wires can be hidden by trees or debris, and could be live. ~
  • Throw away any refrigerated food that was exposed to temperatures above 40 °F for more than two hours or has an unusual odor, color, or texture. When in doubt, throw it out!
  • Contact your doctor if you’re concerned that medications have spoiled.
  • Use only professionals when clearing downed trees.
  • Call 9-1-1 to report emergencies including:
  • Downed power lines; or
  • If you are dependent on equipment that requires electricity and need medical assistance.
