Emergency Snow Removal Service FAQ
What does snow emergency mean?
A snow emergency refers to the active response plan when a snow storm severely impacts a particular city. The exact conditions required to declare a snow emergency depend on the issuing city or municipality. Some cities may also have varying snow emergency levels.
How long do snow emergencies last?
It really depends on the severity of the snowstorm and on the city in question. Typically all city streets are plowed within the first 24 hours of a declared Snow Emergency. There is a night plow phase and the day plow phase of the Snow Emergency, with follow-up plowing, salting and miscellaneous cleanup following for as long as is required. During this time period, vehicles parked in the required snow plow emergency areas are usually ticketed and towed for 4 days (or 96 hours).
How is snow removed after the emergency?
Depending on the municipality, snow removal after a snow emergency can be treated in different ways. Typically, piled-up snow that has been plowed to the side of the roads (and in commercial cases, to the sides of the parking lot) are loaded onto trucks for transportation to designated snow dump sites. Snow dump site selection is determined based on the availability of suitable land and certain pollution prevention factors, such as distance from local lakes and streams.
