During the winter weather months, be alert for radio and television announcements of impending heavy snowstorms. During extreme or severe weather conditions, the Village may also post pertinent information on Cable Channel 6. When emergency weather conditions are predicted, protect yourself and your family by taking these steps:
Keep an AM/FM battery-operated radio nearby. Be sure the batteries are fresh, and stock an extra supply of canned goods, powdered milk, tea, coffee, or hot cocoa mix.
Keep emergency phone numbers near the telephone.
Have an ample supply of any necessary medication.
Use special care to eliminate potential fire hazards. Guard against overheated coal or oil-burning stoves, fireplaces, heaters, or furnaces. Stay indoors if at all possible; avoid overexertion if you must go out. Several layers of loose-fitting, light-weight warm clothing are best. Being able to add or subtract layers will reduce the risk of perspiring and then chilling.
