Station 48 is currently fully staffed with Engine, Squad and Medic crews. Please as always exercise caution during snow events. Here are some helpful tips to stay safe from us.
- To avoid falls clear snow and ice from your sidewalk to make it safe for your family and neighbors.
- Use caution when using snow blowers and always shut down before unclogging the discharge chute.
- Shoveling snow, particularly when it’s wet and heavy, is a strenuous and extremely dangerous activity for anyone who is not physically fit. People with a history of heart disease or high blood pressure should especially avoid shoveling snow.
- Avoid injuries from sledding or snowboarding by selecting a slope free of obstacles and objects that may be hidden under the snow.
