The Huntingdon Valley Fire Company is advising local residents to be safe as Hurricane Sandy approaches. The Public Works Department is already taking measures to keep the township safe, but the fire department is also reminding all of us to be safe.
The following message was posted on its Facebook page:
HVFC urges everyone to use extra caution during the storm. If the road is barricaded, then it is flooded or blocked, so find another way. Even our chaplain can't walk on water, so neither can you or your car. Better yet, stay off the roads. If you see a power line down, always assume it is energized and stay away from it. Pay attention to weather updates and local and state advisories.
Likewise, the township has urged residents to take precautionary measures during the weekend and beginning of the week as the storm nears.
With the potential for significant storm activity beginning this weekend, we strongly urge residents to begin preparing for the storm event. Below is a list of useful resources:
