  • We would like to remind everyone to clear and remove snow and ice off your vehicle.  It is extremely dangerous driving with snow/ice covering the windows as well as the roof/hood/trunk. Failure to remove ice/snow can result in a ticket (NJ Title 39:4-77.1 Failure to remove Ice and Snow from a vehicle). | 20 Cars That Lost the Battle With Extreme Weather

Can I Shovel Snow If I Have Heart Disease? - Chester County Hospital | Penn Medicine
🚨Avoid overexertion when shoveling heavy snow, pushing a car, or walking in deep snow.

🚨Watch for signs of frostbite, which include loss of feeling or pale appearance of fingers, toes or face. 

🚨Watch for signs of hypothermia, which include uncontrollable shivering, memory loss, drowsiness and exhaustion. 

🚨Understand the hazards of wind chill. As wind speed increases, heat is carried away from a person’s body more rapidly, which could lead to severe hypothermia.

🚨Remove clothing if it gets damp or wet. Wet clothing can make you more prone to hypothermia. 

🚨Check on family, friends and neighbors who are at risk and may need additional assistance.

🚨Watch pets closely and keep them indoors when possible. Animals can suffer from hypothermia, frostbite and other cold-weather injuries.
