Snow is headed our way tonight, so please be careful out there. Watch your step on the slippery sidewalks and watch for the plow trucks while pulling out of your parking spot and driving through the courts. When it snows, we will clear and treat the sidewalks and parking lots. Please remember to stomp your feet outside before entering your building, so you do not track in chemicals. Also, be careful when walking up or down the stairs on the tile so you don’t slip with your wet shoes.

When snow is expected, please do not park your car so close to the curb that your front or rear bumper extend over the curb edge as it prevents us from being able to clear the sidewalks with the plow. When we start clearing the parking spaces when snow starts accumulating, we ask the residents to please move your vehicles in order for us to clear multiple spaces at a time. We also ask you kindly push the snow & ice off their vehicles onto the drive area, rather then back onto the side walks or in between the vehicles. Even when we have already plowed the drive areas, please push the snow back to the driveway rather than in between the cars when clearing the snow off your car. This will help prevent unnecessary falls and allows for better snow removal and treatment between your vehicles.

Please be respectful of the snow plows, and give them ample room to move about in the parking lots. When you are driving toward or behind the plow trucks and tractors, please keep a safe distance. Wait for a signal from the plow driver that it is safe to enter or exit. In return, please give them a warning when you are about to enter or exit. The drivers are multi-tasking with the operation of the plows and salt spreaders along with the driving of the vehicle.

Be safe!

Maintenance Monday – snow safety

Snow is headed our way tomorrow, so please be careful out there. Watch your step on the slippery sidewalks and watch for the plow trucks while pulling out of your parking spot and driving through the courts. When it snows, we will clear and treat the sidewalks and parking lots. Please remember to stomp your feet outside before entering your building, so you do not track in chemicals.

When we start clearing the parking spaces, we ask the residents to please move your vehicles in order for us to clear multiple spaces at a time. We also ask you kindly push the snow & ice off their vehicles onto the drive area, rather then back onto the side walks or in between the vehicles. (Even if the drive area has been plowed, we prefer you push the snow onto the drive area).

Please be respectful of the snow plows, and give them ample room to move about in the parking lots. When you are driving toward or behind the plow trucks and tractors, please keep a safe distance. Wait for a signal from the plow driver that it is safe to enter or exit. In return, please give them a warning when you are about to enter or exit. The drivers are multi-tasking with the operation of the plows and salt spreaders along with the driving of the vehicle.

Here are some safety tips for walking in the snow and ice:

1. Wear boots or overshoes with grip soles such as rubber
and neoprene composite. Slick leather or plastic soles on
shoes will definitely increase the risk of slipping.
2. When getting out of your vehicle, look down at the
surface. If it’s coated with ice you might want to park in a
different place.
3. Use special care when entering or exiting Vehicles, use
the vehicle for support. Before standing brace yourself with the vehicle door and
seat back, this will give you some stability.
4. Step – Don’t jump from vehicles and equipment.
5. Don’t walk with your hands in your pockets. This reduces the ability to use
your arms for balance if you do slip.
6. Take short shuffling steps in very icy areas.
7. Don’t carry or swing heavy loads, such as large boxes, cases or purses that
may cause you to lose your balance when you are walking.
8. When walking, curl your toes under and walk as flat-footed as possible.
9. Don’t step on uneven surfaces. Avoid curbs with ice on them.
10. Place your full attention on walking. Digging in your pocketbook or backpack
while walking on ice is dangerous.
11. Test potentially slick areas by tapping your foot on them.
12. Keep walkways clear of debris, water and ice.

Be safe out there and keep warm!
