Law enforcement officials are reaching out to the public via Facebook to provide tips on how to weather this weekend’s incoming snow storm.

South Burlington Fire Department urges you to expect the unexpected and put your safety first:

Like many law enforcement agencies, South Burlington PD asks you not to travel on Sunday, unless absolutely necessary.  Be sure to clear the snow away from any heating exhaust vents.  Also, help them out by clearing snow from nearby fire hydrants.

Putney Fire Department is reminding you to stock up on groceries well before Sunday.  They also urge you to prepare for potential power outages, and check on elderly neighbors.

To sum up their Facebook post, fire crews tell people to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and hit the slopes.
