Snow Removal Tips

  1. Shovel regularly and during the storm. Snow can be heavy and difficult to remove if it accumulates.
  2. Use rock salt or another de-icing agent to melt snow and ice on sidewalks and driveways.
  3. Clear snow away from the base of the driveway, so that you don’t have to shovel it later.
  4. Use a snow blower for large areas or if you have physical limitations.
  5. Remove snow from your roof to prevent the buildup of snow and ice, which can cause damage to the roof and create potential safety hazards.
  6. Dress warmly and take breaks as needed to avoid over-exertion and frostbite.
  7. Avoid shoveling immediately after eating or drinking alcohol as this increases the risk of heart attack.
  8. Don’t throw snow onto the street, as it can create hazardous driving conditions for yourself and others.
  9. Use caution when operating snow removal equipment and make sure to follow all safety instructions.
  10. Use sand or salt periodically to spread across stairs and driveways to keep them safe for walking.
