Winter Storm Alert - Be Prepared!
We are gearing up for another possible winter storm with moderate to heavy snow accumulation here in Morris County and much of the Northeast. We have all heard about getting and being prepared for winter storms. Take a few moments now to review your home and vehicle emergency kits. Do I need supplies? Don’t wait until Sunday or Monday when it has already started snowing to panic shop! Now is the time to get out there and replenish dwindling supplies of food, medications and any personal items you may need for yourself, your family and your pets.
Keep checking up on the forecast so you know what to expect!
