How can I help during a snow event?

To put it simply, the best thing you can do is stay safe and keep those around your safe as well.  Make sure children avoid big piles of snow near the road and to keep a safe distance from approaching plow trucks- nothing worse than being underneath a pile of flying snow! Another way to stay safe is to stay off the roads. If you must be out, keep plenty of distance between you and other cars, and particularly plows.  A snowplow can’t stop as quickly as a normal car, so please give plows plenty of room to maneuver.  Drive cautiously and most of all be patient. It takes time and lots of effort to clear the roads.  Remove all parked cars from the streets to provide plows with full access.
