Snow Emergencies

What is a Snow Emergency?

snow emergency is the term used to indicate the active response plan when a snow storm severely impacts a city, county or town in the United States.

The purpose of declaring a snow emergency is to provide priority plowing so that some main routes would be passable in a severe storm.

When the Borough calls a snow emergency the dates and times the snow emergency is in effect will be listed on the first page of the Borough website and can also be found on our local news station WFMZ.

Please remember you must remove your car(s) in the appropriate amount of time or you will be ticketed and towed. For a list of snow emergency routes please click Snow Emergency Routes

As a reminder…… although sidewalk shoveling is not a part of snow emergency route regulations, borough residents are required to clear their walks within 15 hours of the end of a snow or ice storm.
