Take a moment for winter safety

December 31, 2018

Winter is here, and so are the reminders for ways you can help the fire and police departments provide the most efficient and effective emergency services.

  • Make sure your home address is clearly visible from the street. Curb markings and mailbox signs covered by snow and ice can delay the arrival of crews. Address numbers are most valuable if they are visible on your house.
  • Keep your driveways, front walks and steps clear of snow and ice. Snow and ice accumulating in these areas can make it extremely difficult and dangerous when emergency personnel need to move a patient from their residence to a medic unit parked in the street.
  • In the winter, fire hydrants become hidden by snow, making them difficult, and at times, impossible to locate. With your help, firefighters will be able to locate the fire hydrants quickly. Make sure to visually check fire hydrants near your home to ensure they haven’t become buried under snow or ice. If they have, please take  a moment to clear them.

How snow removal is prioritized

Township residents often ask how the snow removal service is prioritized. Here is a summary of the policies:

  • During storms, major thoroughfares and streets are cleared first, along with bridges, school zones, hills and steep-incline areas (including residential areas).
  • Next, residential neighborhoods with flat terrain receive attention.
  • Continuing snow and wind, extremely low temperatures and ice that intermittently melts and freezes can prolong the time it takes for an operator to complete a route.

The street-by-street priorities are as follows:

Major Roads – County Line (Frederick to Dog Leg), Furnas, Kley, Antioch School, Jackson, Pattys Curve, Aullwood, Meeker, Kershner, Kinmont, Stonequarry, Engle, Brantford, Stop Eight, Benchwood, Towne Center, York Commons, Commerce Center and Maxton

Bridges – Meeker and Frost

Steep Hills – Meeker Creek, Singing Ridge, Cloverleaf, Rockwell and Landsend

School Zones – Stonequarry

Secondary Streets – Hertlein, Claude, Lambert, Old Country, Wild Cherry, Alvira, and Malina

Cul-de-Sacs and Dead Ends – all other roads in the township located in subdivision

County Roadways – All other major roadways such and North Dixie, Miller, Old Springfield, Little York, Peters, Dog Leg, Healthcliff, Lightner, Martindale and Frederick are plowed and maintained by Montgomery County
