Mayor Walsh on impending blizzard

The following is a statement from Boston Mayor Marty Walsh on the upcoming blizzard, as issued by his office Sunday evening:

“I have been in constant communication with all City departments regarding the blizzard watch that has been issued for the City of Boston beginning Monday evening and continuing through early Wednesday. Our City has been through blizzards before and I am confident we are prepared. Public Works has 700 pieces of equipment ready, over 35,000 tons of salt on hand and snow farms are being readied for anticipated removal operations. Once the storm begins, I ask everyone to be vigilant, stay inside and off the roads or use public transportation when possible, and remember to check on your neighbors, especially the elderly and disabled. Anyone who suspects carbon monoxide poisoning should call 911 immediately. I also ask residents to remove snow, slush and ice from sidewalks, curbs and to keep fire hydrants clear.”
