Heavy snow is forecast in the days to come, followed by some sunny days. Please keep the following 18 points in mind:

  1. Tractor trailer stuck in the snowClean the snow off your car or truck before you drive. You need to see out the windows. Snow blowing off a car roof can cause another driver to be blinded.
  2. Gutters may be clogged with leaves and debris. When the snow starts to melt, water may drip over the edge of the gutter, causing water penetration and ice buildup under the gutter. Gutters should be cleaned out before the snowstorm.
  3. If the building has a flat roof, make sure that the roof drains are clear before the snowstorm.
  4. Drains at the exterior entrance to the basement may be blocked by leaves and debris. These drains should be cleaned before the storm.
  5. Driveway drains may be clogged by leaves and debris. Make sure these drains are cleaned before the storm.
  6. Snow in Central Park, New York CityHave salt and sand available to make icy areas safe. These items often sell out when a major storm is forecast, so you should keep a stock of them in your home or building.
  7. Have good quality snow shovels available. Poor equipment can break, and you are more prone to injury when using a poor quality snow shovel. Snow shovels often sell out when a major storm is forecast, so you should keep them in your home or building.

    ➜ Snow Shovel Info
  8. Shoveling snow can cause heart attacks. Exercise appropriate caution when shoveling snow.

    ➜ Snow Shoveling Risks
  9. Be careful when using gasoline-powered snow removal equipment. Gasoline is flammable, and running the equipment inside can result in the buildup of deadly carbon monoxide gasses.

    ➜ Carbon Monoxide Gasses
  10. Street drains may be clogged or blocked. A non-functional street drain can allow water to drain onto your property. Make sure these drains are clear. Important:  Watch out for traffic any time you are working on a public street.
  11. Yellow New York City fire hydrantFire hydrants may be blocked by snow or ice. Make sure hydrants are kept clear. Hydrants may need to be shoveled out after the road is plowed.
  12. It is helpful if your driveway is marked to make it easier to plow or shovel. Reflective markers are available at home supply stores.
  13. If the power goes out and you need a space heater, exercise caution. Some space heaters are hazardous. Use only safe space heaters. Be careful to follow the manufacturer's instructions, including not overloading electrical circuits, not using unsafe extension cords, and keeping the space heater away from anything flammable. Heed all warnings regarding young children, pets, and people who are not sensitive to heat.

    ➜ Info on Portable Heaters
  14. Snow covered houseDo not use old interior space heaters that burn anything.  Some old kerosene and propane-gas heaters are very hazardous.
  15. Do not use old electric space heaters that may not meet modern safety standards.  Modern space heaters have safer electric cords and often will shut off if they are accidentally tipped over.
  16. Avoid burning candles. A burning candle can cause a house fire. Use LED flashlights instead.

    ➜ Candle Fire Info
  17. Because the risk of fire and carbon-monoxide poisoning increases, make sure that smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors are present and functioning.

    ➜ Carbon Monoxide Gasses
  18. We do not recommend the use of unvented fuel-burning space heaters except under controlled conditions where they are known to be safe. Unvented fuel-burning space heaters should never be used in multi-family buildings, and may be prohibited in your community.

    ➜ Heater Safety Guide

Be sure and exercise appropriate caution when checking these items. There are potential dangers (for example falling off a ladder or being injured by a passing car of plow). Be sure to seek professional help as appropriate.
