Make sure that you look out for for each other when you out there the hedges in the highway.
You guys know the drill you've done this many many times before, so for crying out loud make sure you be safe, think about safety. First, ninety-nine percent of our vehicles are up, believe it or not. So, and the focus our everyone say we're going to be doing. Is it's piling you're not going to be spreading so much salt? You know we're going to really be plowing.
We ask that neighbors and citizens help each other digging out with the elderly, those with medical conditions helping clean their sidewalks. It's actually part of the part of the code enforcement within the county. If you need, if you'd like to volunteer, we ask you that you contact your local community organization. There are a number of them within the county and I know they reach out to you on a regular basis and they can provide you with direct links to those folks right in your community within blocks of your residence. Please.
Please I know it's snowing. I know it's fun being out there with your family having fun but I want you guys to be sick and we want our drivers to be safe. So please take Claire of the road so that the drivers can have the roads to plow, because it's very important for them to be able to plow and plow safe, because we have kids walking around slain. We have parents doing the same and it makes it hard for our drivers.
We ask that residents of be mindful of the hydrants in their neighborhood. We ask them to clean these out. This is especially important if there may be an emergency and the fire department needs to access those hydrants. So if you do know where they are, please take an opportunity to clean those out for us. It would be his appreciated.
