LET'S KEEP EACH OTHER SAFE -
CLEAR A PATH
As we dig out from one of the largest snow fall totals that
Connecticut has experienced in its history, it is important to remember
to shovel out fire hydrants, clear paths for emergency personnel
(ambulance, fire, police, etc.), and to ensure that your local heating
oil and propane supplier has access to deliver fuel your home, and
public utilities companies and public safety officials can respond to
The ability to have access to your home, by the many public and private
people who provide goods and services to you, on a routine or emergency
basis, has been hindered because of the unusually high snow totals.
NOTE: Homeowners need to be especially mindful of the exhaust
vents from their heating systems. Vents on the side of homes can easily
become blocked by high snow and result in heating system malfunctions
and carbon monoxide gas getting into the home and creating an extreme
safety hazard. Make sure exhaust vents are clear of all obstructions.
The health and well being of Connecticut residents is of the utmost
importance. State and local snow removal personnel have been working
diligently to make streets and highways passable. Be mindful of
neighbors in need and lend a helping hand when possible. Together, with
your help, we can ensure that everyone is safe.
