[ARCHIVED] Weekend Storm Preparation

Sandbag Station

The first storm of 2019 is set to hit the Town and the rest of the Bay Area later this evening. The most significant part of the storm is expected to begin on Saturday morning. As it approaches, it is a good time to prepare your households for the heavy rains, power outages and falling debris that inevitably occur throughout our town during a typical wet weather season.  The Town reminds everyone that NOW is the time to make sure your emergency backup power generators, sump pumps, and other detention systems are in good working order.

This is the best time to assure your flashlights are 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 concerned with the possibility of small-scale flooding issues, the Town offers up to 20 free sandbags free of charge to its residents. Residents can visit the Public Works Corporation Yard at 99 Station Lane and load the bags using the shovel and bags provided. The facility is located behind the permit center and is available 24/7/365.

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, do observe our vehicles with their trademark flashing amber lights. This could be a sign of a downed tree or flooding, but it generally marks a worker in the streets away from their vehicle. So please remember to look out for them while they’re looking out for you!
