Another Winter Storm for Gloucester and Cape Ann. Be careful out there!
Stay off streets as much as possible so the plows can do their job. Shovel out fire hydrants from the snow.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors – Check-in on those that are ill or elderly.
Today’s snow is wet and heavy, creating increased risk of injury and heart attack for those shoveling. Hire a plow or a neighbor to help. If you do have to shovel or use a snow blower, follow the safety tips in the link below.
Be Careful Driving and Walking in the Snow.
If you have to get out, drive slow. Use extra caution. Wear sturdy boots with good traction and bright colors for visibility. Be safe and walk with grace.
Avoid Heart Attack and Injury. People with heart, lung and other illnesses should ask their physician for advice and recommendations before shoveling or snow blowing.
