City of Saint John Reminds Citizens To Be Prepared for Forecasted Storm

12-Mar-2018

The City of Saint John’s Transportation and Environment Service will be closely monitoring the impending storm.  Snow removal crews will be out in force to keep City streets as safe as possible.  Many primary roads have been treated with an anti-icing solution intended to delay the accumulation of snow on the treated streets.

Heavy amounts of precipitation combined with strong winds may cause blizzard-like conditions. Visibility may be poor.  Motorists are asked to drive with extreme caution and to avoid travelling during the storm if possible.
 
To prepare for the event of a prolonged power outage, citizens are reminded to have everything they need for at least 72 hours following a storm. This includes preparing an emergency kit for home and car. An emergency kit should include food, water, batteries, a battery-powered radio, first-aid supplies and any special items such as prescriptions, infant formula and equipment for people with disabilities. The City of Saint John EMO will monitor conditions and is prepared to respond if necessary.
