Safety Reminders for CBRM Residents Post Storm

Crews have been out working through the night in all areas of the CBRM. There is a lot of debris down causing obstructions to road ways, including downed trees, branches, leaves and power lines.  

We are still experiencing high winds and are asking residents to please stay off the roads so crews can work safety to clean up.  

  • If possible, continue to stay indoors and keep the roadways clear.
  • If you are driving, please respect all barricades and caution tape.
  • Keep an eye out for fire services crews and do not drive over fire hoses.
  • If traffic signal lights are out or flashing, treat the intersection as a 4-way stop.
  • Signalized crosswalk lights may be out; please be cautious of pedestrians.
  • Please stay away from downed electrical equipment and report to Nova Scotia Power at 1-877-428-6004
  • Don’t use appliances like BBQs or generators in your home or garage; be carbon monoxide aware.
  • If using a generator: Ensure that the generator operates outdoors in well-ventilated conditions, well away from doors or windows, and never in your garage, cto prevent exhaust gases from entering the house.
  • Keep food safety in mind when you looks power. Know when to save and when to throw out by visiting: https://novascotia.ca/nse/food-protection/docs/factsheet-poweroff.pdf
