North Caldwell Fire Department Provides Safety Tips in Jonas Aftermath


NORTH CALDWELL, NJ — In the aftermath of Blizzard Jonas, which accumulated nearly two-and-a-half feet of snowfall in the area and is now being considered one of the top five snowstorms in state history, the North Caldwell Fire Departments urge residents to remain cautious.

The North Caldwell Fire Department wants reminds all homeowners to clear snow and ice from sidewalks, around fire hydrants, exit doors, exhaust vents, intake and exhaust pipes on furnaces and outside generators.

Residents are also reminded to give special attention to young children, elderly, and pets during harsh weather conditions. Clothing and gloves should be worn in layers (a hat, a scarf, and other clothing to cover the mouth and to protect the lungs).

Residents should continue to limit their time outdoors and to take frequent breaks in a warm location and avoid getting wet. According to the NCFD, the body generates its own heat when engaged in physical activity. Therefore, residents should remain active throughout the day and watch for signs of hypothermia (uncontrollable shivering, disorientation, incoherence, drowsiness, etc.). Avoid overexertion outside and when shoveling snow.

The NCFD also urges residents to keep a close eye on pets and keep them indoors as much as possible. Pets suffer in the cold just like humans do.

Do not use an open flame to thaw pipes. Professionals recommend using a hair dryer or rags soaked in hot water to aid thawing. Snow blowers should also be started in a well-ventilated area to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Keep slippery driveways & sidewalks well-shoveled.

Local police continue to urge residents to remain cautious on the roads, in vehicle or on foot, due to ice and wind.
