General Winter Safety Precautions:

As we begin to encounter Winter conditions for the first time this season, we urge residents to consider their safety by following these essential precautions throughout the season.

  1. Stay Informed: Keep yourself updated on the latest weather forecasts and advisories through local news outlets, weather apps, or official channels.
  2. Be prepared: Stock up on essential supplies, including food, water, and any necessary medications for any unexpected power outages or travel advisories.
  3. Travel Responsibly: If you must travel, inform someone of your itinerary and expected arrival time. Keep your mobile device charged, carry a fully-stocked emergency kit in your vehicle, and drive cautiously.
  4. Stay Indoors: If possible, remain indoors during the storm to minimize exposure to harsh conditions.
  5. Check on Vulnerable Neighbors: Look out for elderly or vulnerable neighbors who may need assistance during extreme weather events. Consider registering vulnerable family members in the Vulnerable Person Registry.

Your safety is our top priority, and we encourage you to exercise caution and preparedness during any winter storm or weather events!

Thank you.
