WEST MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP SNOW TIPS:
West Manchester Township is offering the following tips to follow once the snow begins to fall:
- Ensure proper ventilation of furnaces, water heaters and other appliances that vent outside. Clear snow from exhaust pipes.
- Clear snow from gas meters. Heavy snow can cover the regulator vent and block gas service.
- Check on vulnerable neighbors, friends and relatives during and after the storm. Make sure they have an adequate supply of food, water and medicine.
- Do not call 911 to report power outages unless the outage poses a threat to safety or property (contact numbers for electricity providers are listed below).
- Never use a generator indoors or in an attached garage. A portable generator exhausts a deadly gas called carbon monoxide that is odorless and colorless. Place generators outside where exhaust fumes will not enter into enclosed spaces. The generator should be protected from direct exposure to rain and snow. Follow manufacturer instructions.
- Clear fire hydrants near your home or business from snow so the hydrants are readily accessible to fire departments. Fire hydrants should be cleared of snow from about 3 feet in each direction, with a clear path to the street.
- Clear snow off all exposed surfaces of vehicles before driving, including the top of the vehicle.
- Take care not to overexert when shoveling snow. Push the snow as you shovel because it’s easier on your back than lifting the snow. Make sure to stretch before and after snow removal. Take breaks as necessary.

SNOW AND ICE ON SIDEWALKS
Do not shovel or blow snow into public streets. It is against the law, defeats the purpose of snow plowing and causes unsafe conditions for all drivers. All shoveled or blown snow should be piled in your yard or property. To remove snow properly, snowplows may make several trips up your street. We recommend you do not shovel the end of your driveway open until the street is completely open and the truck has moved on. Any person owning property along a street or highway in West Manchester Township is required to remove the snow and ice from the sidewalks at least 24″ wide for the entire length of their property. The path must be cleared within eight hours after the snow/ice has stopped. If the snow/ice stops after 10 PM, sidewalks must be cleared by 10 AM the next morning. Snow and ice may NEVER be thrown, pushed, cast, blown, shoveled, plowed or dumped into the street. **The above violations may result in a fine up to $600.00.
