REMEMBER TO CLEAR YOUR LOW EXHAUST DISCHARGES
With the heavy wind blowing snow as a reminder keep clear your low lying exhaust vents from your furnaces outside your homes. If not cleared you can have the potential of build up of CO in the home.
Emergency response
Please if you don't need to go outside today once the snow starts to fall please don't. Emergency crews find it difficult to deal with this extreme weather as it is, we don't want to add unnecessary traffic into the mix if we don't have to.
