As our community recovers from this tropical storm, I wanted to just provide some tips to keep us all safe:
1- Stay clear of any downed or hanging power lines. Even if they appear to not be live, they can always carry danger;
2- Be careful if you are using a generator. They must be placed outside of your home so that they can exhaust property. Never pour gas into a generator when they are still hot as this can cause a fire hazard;
3- Do not use candles for light. Instead use flashlights or battery operated lights;
4- Do not move or try to cut large downed trees yourself. Call the Town of Huntington for assistance;
5- Continue to socially distance yourselves and wear face masks as you interact with your neighbors;
6- Be cautious in using food from your refrigerator if you have lost power.
Our volunteers have already responded to almost 100 calls for help since the storm. Please be careful when driving. Always yield the right of way to our fire trucks and ambulances so that they can get to emergency scenes.
As always, we will get through this together.
