Delaware County will have extra staff at the 911 center beginning at 6pm tonight along with representatives from Penn Dot PECO Pa. State Police and Comcast. The fire department plans on having a fire crew in the station starting tomorrow morning along with our EMS staff. We would like to offer the following safety tips.1 Please take your time shoveling. This could be a wet heavy snow which will make it difficult to shovel and plow. If you have a medical condition that could become worse if you shovel please have someone else shovel for you. Remember to take frequent breaks. 2 If your snow blower becomes clogged remember to shut the motor off and disengage the auger before you try to clear the clog. You should not stick your hand in the auger even with the blower turned off.3 Please do not go out. This will allow the plow crews to do their jobs and also allow the emergency responders to make their responses in a timely manner.4 If you lose power and use a portable generator to restore power to your home please keep the portable generator away from your home so Carbon Monoxide does not get into your house. Also remember to keep the exhaust clear so it does not become clogged.5 Stay tuned to the TV or radio for weather updates. 6 If there is a fire hydrant on your block. Could you please locate it and remove the snow from around it. This will save us valuable time in a fire emergency.Remember to check the Boroughs website for further information along with NOAAs website for additional forecast information.Be safe.
