Storm Preparedness

Ensuring Your Safety is Our Top Priority

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from Wednesday, Dec. 16, at 2:00 p.m. until Thursday, Dec. 17, at 1:00 p.m. Temperatures on Wednesday are expected to dip below freezing. Heavy snow is possible with accumulations of up to 12 to 17 inches, and strong winds likely in portions of the Northeast, including areas near or just north and west of the Interstate 95 corridor from Boston to New York and Philadelphia. Cedarcrest Property Management is monitoring weather conditions and making final preparations to ensure your community’s snow removal contractor provides you with excellent snow management services. In the meantime, here are some tips from FEMA you can do to prepare for the storm. Tips from FEMA

Preparing as a Community:

    • Make sure your vehicles are parked in your garage, driveway, or assigned parking space. This will enable the plows and salters to effectively remove snow and ice for your safety and the safety of others.
    • If your community has public streets, which are maintained by your local municipality, make sure you follow the municipality’s storm parking regulations. Most municipalities prohibit on-street parking during snow events and they could possibly ticket and tow your vehicle.
    • Report to Management any abandoned vehicles parked on the property or vehicles parked in violation of your community’s rules and regulations so Management can act immediately to identify the responsible Owner and request they remove the vehicle immediately.
    • Be aware of your surroundings, especially when snow removal equipment is being used on site. Stay clear and stay safe. Do not assume they can see you, they are focused on snow removal.
  • • Any questions regarding power outages should be directed to your local power provider.
  • Check your community By-Laws and rules regarding gas-powered generators. In most communities they are strictly prohibited for you and your neighbor’s safety and protection.
  • Please remember that snow removal is a process and your community’s snow removal contractors will do their best to get the job completed properly in the most expeditious manner possible. They appreciate your patience.

Please reach out to Management only if there is an emergency, (loss of power, loss of heat/hot water, leaks, downed trees, etc.), so your Property Director can devote their time to urgent issues during the snow event.

We thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Stay warm & safe!
