Help Neighbors First In Snow Emergencies

RSS XML FeedBackground Active Feb 24, 2007 to Feb 27, 2007

During snow and ice emergencies, volunteers should respond to the needs of their families and neighbors first -- especially those who have physical or mental disabilities. 

Please lend a hand to elderly or disabled neighbors who cannot clear their own sidewalks, porches and steps. Clear access ramps to enable our wheelchair bound neighbors the access they require during these periods when mobility is particularly challenging for them - and check to see if they have enough food on hand. TIP: Remove snow before pedestrians pack it down.

Please do not drive unless necessary, so that roads will be open for emergency and snow-removal vehicles.

Stay tuned to local radio stations for public calls for volunteers if they are needed. Arlington County's new emergency radio station can be found at 1700 AM.
