In response to yesterday’s winter storm and the Wind Chill Advisory in effect through 1/11/18, residents are reminded to take safety measures:

  • Check on seniors or other neighbors who might need help in the snow and cold.
  • Keep pets inside during frigid temperatures. Remember: If it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for them.
  • Take steps to protect your home from the cold, such as leaving cabinet doors under sinks or drains open — particularly at night — so that pipes won’t freeze. Heat your home safely and be sure to install carbon monoxide detectors. Read more tips here.
  • Travel with care: Icy conditions may persist on some roads, particularly after dark.

In addition, the Livingston Police Department and Department of Public Works remind residents:

  • Make sure fire hydrants are clear of snow.
  • Clear your sidewalk within 24 hours after the snow ends.
  • Do not blow or shovel snow into the street. Doing so creates additional safety and plowing hazards. Remember, YOU are responsible for your snow-removal contractor; be sure your contractor does not put your snow out into the street. Read more here: Alert from LPD.
