Residents are reminded:

• Clear a path to your front door in the event that emergency workers need to access your residence.  
 
• Shovel out any fire hydrants and generators on your property.  And your mailbox if you want to get mail.
 
• Do not plow snow from your driveway into the street. This is a violation of Township ordinances. 
 
• The Township is not responsible for plowing the apron of your driveway. 
 
• Pursuant to Township ordinance 3-3A.2, sidewalks must be cleared of snow or ice by the owner or tenant of the abutting property within 12 hours after snow has fallen.
 
• Check on your neighbors, particularly the elderly.  
 
• Do not run vehicles, generators, or snow blowers inside your garage.   

Safety Tips to Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:

  • Check the batteries in your carbon monoxide detector and smoke detector. If you don’t have either detector, install them now, before the storm hits.

  • Clear any snow accumulation from all outside dryer and heating vents.

  • Remove snow from car exhaust pipe(s) before sitting in car and letting it warm up. Failure to remove snow can result in carbon monoxide poisoning. Be sure there is ample room for air to circulate in front and behind your car to allow any exhaust to dissipate and not build up around your car.

If you suspect Carbon Monoxide Poisoning, Take Immediate Action:

1. If a loved one is unconscious or unresponsive, get out them out of the house and call 911 immediately.
2. Exit the house/building immediately. Do not waste time opening windows to “air” it out; this will delay your escape and cause you to breathe in more dangerous fumes.

3. Contact your local fire department/energy provider.

4. Call the NJ Poison Experts, 800-222-1222, for immediate treatment advice.
