[ARCHIVED] Preparing your Household for Heavy Rain

sandbags location

Local news reports are predicting potential heavy rainfalls for the upcoming weekend.

As this weekend approaches now is a good time to prepare your household for heavy rain, power outages, and falling debris.

This is a reminder to keep your flashlights filled with fresh batteries and in a handy location as well as candles and lanterns to help deal with a small scale power outage. For those of you with emergency power sources or pumping equipment on your property, a pre-test is advised. If you are a resident concerned with the possibility of small scale flooding issues, the Town offers free of charge up to 20 sandbags to its residents. You need only come down to the Public Works Corporation Yard at 99 Station Lane and load them up using the bags and shovels provided.

During the worst weather episodes, you can count on your Public Works and Police departments to be there. Please remember that if you must travel during a storm, to observe our vehicles with their trademark flashing amber lights. This could be a sign of a down tree or flooding, but it surely marks a worker out of their vehicle. So please remember to look out for us while we’re looking out for you!

For non-emergencies please call 650-688-6500.
