Neighborhood Safety Tips

Mayor Madden also encourages Troy residents and families to review the following tips and information to assist snow removal efforts and keep Troy neighborhoods accessible during and following the storm:

  • Help protect your home, family and neighborhood by shoveling out fire hydrants near your home or business during and after the storm. Remove any snow and ice within a 3-foot perimeter around the hydrant. This can help save firefighters valuable time when responding to possible medical or public safety emergencies in your neighborhood. During an emergency, please dial 9-1-1.
  • Clear snow from your driveway, walkways and stairs to protect the health and safety of not only your family, but also mail carriers, delivery services, and emergency personnel who may be responding to a fire or medical emergency at your home.
  • Sidewalks adjacent to properties must be cleared of snow by 10:00 a.m. the day following the end of a snowstorm. Do not shovel snow into city streets – this can create a hazard for vehicles and reduces effectiveness of snow cleanup by City crews. Failure to comply will result in a violation.
  • Check in with neighbors, family, and friends – especially the elderly, those with young children, or mobility issues – who might need assistance.
  • If you lose power, please contact National Grid at 1-800-867-5222 or report it online.
