Winter is just around the corner. Here are some helpful hints to know when it snows...

AVOID HEALTH RISKS!
Snow shoveling is responsible for many heart attacks and bad backs each winter. Take your time shoveling. Remember, only lift small amounts to avoid putting excessive stress on your body. If you develop chest pressure or pain, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, nausea, or any other unusual symptoms while shoveling—STOP IMMEDIATELY—and seek attention or call 911. Remember, cold weather puts a strain on your heart, even without exercise.
ADOPT-A-HYDRANT
The Frankfort Township Road District encourages you to take a moment after each snowfall to clear snow away from fire hydrants on or near your property so they can be accessed quickly in case of an emergency.
TRASH PICK-UP DAY
If your trash and recyclable collection day coincides with a snowstorm, please take care to place bags and containers well back from the roadway. Put them where a passing snowplow will not strike them and scatter their contents all over the neighborhood.
MAIL SERVICE
Your local delivery person will appreciate it if you clear the area in front of your mailbox. If they cannot get close enough to the mailbox,You may be deprived of your mail.
REDUCE RESIDUAL SNOW
Unfortunately, some snow invariably is deposited in driveways. Shovel snow to the right side of your driveway, as you face the street. This will help minimize the amount of residual roadway snow that comes from the street plows. The Road District regrets any inconvenience—we are all in this together!!!!
