*

Calls for public services such as plowing, road concerns
or scheduling of government offices should be directed to
your local municipal government (city, township, borough). If you do not know your municipality (it is NOT
always your mailing address), find out, as it is important
to know if you need to call 9-1-1. You should also know
how to contact your municipal offices in a non-emergency situation.

*

Know who your electrical supplier is and how to report
power outages using the internet or telephone.

*

Do not call 9-1-1 to report non-emergency events.
However, do call 9-1-1 if there is a live wire down in your
yard or on your street and it is presenting a public safety
hazard.

*

IMPACT

Extreme winter weather can immobilize an entire region. Ice
and heavy snowfall can knock out heat, power, and communications services, sometimes for several days. Driving and walking
can become extremely hazardous due to icy conditions, snowfall
accumulation, low visibility, or extreme cold. People may need
to stay at home or work without utilities or other services, until
driving is safe. Pipes and water mains can break.

Happy 60th!

You can read much more about preparing for a winter
storm in the following article from the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA).

HOW TO PREPARE
FOR A WINTER STORM

From the Federal Emergency Management Agency

Winter storms can bring freezing rain, ice, snow, high
winds, or a combination of these conditions. They can cause
power outages that last for days, make roads and walkways
very dangerous, and can affect community services. Planning
and preparing can help you manage the impact of a winter
storm and keep you and your family safe.
A sustained power outage can have a significant impact on
people who require electricity to power medical equipment,
so make sure that you have a plan to take care of yourself and
your family during an outage.

KNOW YOUR RISK
WHAT

A winter storm occurs when there is significant precipitation
and the temperature is low enough that precipitation forms as
sleet or snow, or when rain turns to ice. A winter storm can
range from freezing rain and ice, to moderate snowfall over a
few hours, to a blizzard that lasts for several days, or be a combination of several winter weather conditions. Many winter
storms are accompanied by dangerously low temperatures.

WHEN

Winter storms can occur from early autumn to late spring
depending on the region of the country.

WHERE

Winter storms and colder than normal temperatures can happen in every region of the country.

Your life
at your fingertips.
Helping you keep what matters
most safe and in your control.
