winter weather advisory

winter weather advisoryRED BANK, NJ – There is a winter storm headed for our area that could bring as much as a foot of snow accompanied by high winds and possible power outages.  The storm is expected to be slow moving beginning around midnight in our area and continuing until Sunday morning.

In the event of a power outage, all residents are urged to notify JCP&L by calling 1-888-LIGHTSS.  The more people that call, the higher the priority that area is given.  Residents should not call the Police Department to report power outages, however, any downed wires should be reported to the Police Department immediately.  Residents should not approach any downed wires as they could be live and cause electrocution.

 

The Police Department and Public Works are asking that all vehicles be removed from Borough streets whenever possible to facilitate snow removal from the roadways.  All vehicles are PROHIBITED on streets designated as Snow Emergency Routes.  Vehicles parked on Snow Emergency Routes will be ticketed and are subject to towing. A list of “Snow Emergency Routes” is posted below.

Snow Emergency Routes

All property owners/tenants are responsible for removing snow and ice from sidewalks within 24 hours.  Please see the relevant portion of our ordinance below. 

Removal of Snow and Ice from Sidewalks:

Any owner or owners, occupant or occupants, tenant or tenants, building superintendent, rental agent or person in charge of premises abutting or bordering upon any public street, in the Borough, shall remove all snow and ice from the abutting sidewalks of such streets, or in the case of ice which may be so frozen as to make removal impracticable, shall cause the same to be thoroughly covered with sand or ashes, within 24 hours of daylight after the same shall fall or be formed thereon.

The Fire Marshal’s Office reminds everyone to never leave candles unattended and to use caution if using a generator.  Please review the document below for generator safety tips. 

Generator Safety Tips

The Fire Marshal’s Office also reminds anyone with gas fired appliances (such as furnaces) that vent outdoors at or near ground level to make sure that the vents are cleared of snow.  Clogged vents could result in a dangerous carbon monoxide build up in the home. 

The Red Bank Volunteer Fire Department is also asking all residents to assist with clearing fire hydrants as you are shoveling your property.  This will help them gain access quickly should they need to respond to a call in your area.

Residents in low lying areas that are subject to flooding should carefully monitor the situation particularly during high tides on Saturday and early Sunday.  Residents should be prepared to take appropriate action if flooding should occur.
