How To Prepare for a Snow Storm

Updated: Feb 12, 2019

With yet another snow storm approaching the northeast, it’s important to be prepared for what's in store. By taking the following precautions, you can gain valuable peace of mind and focus on enjoying the winter wonderland outside your window.

Replenish Your Supplies

  • Make sure your property has a shovel and plenty of ice melt on hand to keep walkways clear and safe

  • Check to ensure your building and generator have plenty of fuel

  • If you plan on using a fireplace or wood-burning stove, you should maintain a supply of dry, seasoned wood

  • Have plenty of warm clothing and blankets on hand, and stock non-perishable food items and necessary medications

Prepare for a Power Outage

  • Close off any rooms not in use to maintain heat in necessary areas

  • Charge battery-powered electronic and communication devices

  • Bring out your flashlights, batteries, first aid kit and other emergency supplies for easy access

  • Keep a battery-powered radio on hand to stay up to date on weather conditions

Hire a Professional Snow Removal Contractor

  • With a professional contractor, you can expect the work to be completed on time and on budget

  • Armed with state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience, a professional snow removal contractor will make quick work of your snow; preventing costly shut downs and delays

  • In addition to updates throughout the storm, a professional snow removal contractor will provide a detailed post-storm report; indicating the amount of time required, snow encountered, de-icer applied, etc.

Stay Warm and Enjoy the Winter Wonderland

  • Drive only if necessary. If you do brave the storm, make sure your car has adequate fuel and an emergency supply kit

  • If you go outside to shovel snow, dress warm, know your limits and try not to overexert yourself
