Press release from Washoe County: All available Washoe County’s roads crews and equipment are out working on removing ice and snow and are asking for the public’s help to help them keep roads in the unincorporated areas open.

11:04
Kevin MacMillan: 
Here are some tips from Washoe to follow:

· Keep your vehicles and garbage cans off the streets so that the snowplow can plow your entire street.

· If you shovel your driveway, don’t dump the snow on the sidewalk or roadway.

· Be visible to snow plow operators by maintaining a safe distance behind them.

Annie Flanzraich: 
The South Lake Tahoe Fire Department is offering sand bags if the snow turns to rain, which could become a localized flooding hazard. Sand bags and sand are available at Fire Station 3, 2101 Lake Tahoe Blvd. (access from James Ave behind the fire station) and at Bijou Park in the rear Pavilion area.
Friday December 17, 2010 11:36 Annie Flanzraich

Annie Flanzraich: 
The department also reminds residents to be sure to keep vehicles topped off with fuel as well as snow blowers. Residents should also monitor snow accumulations on roofs and keep gas meters free from snow accumulation.
