Marlboro Office of Emergency Management is monitoring Tropical Storm Isaias. There is still uncertainty on the exact track and intensity. Please take a moment today and prepare:
- Fill plastic freezer bags with water or use water bottles and place in the freezer. The ice can be used to extend the time that refrigerated food is kept safe during an outage.
- Charge all personal electronic devices.
- Secure or store any loose items such as garbage cans, flower pots, lawn ornaments, etc. as they can become dangerous projectiles in high winds.
- We ask residents to assist us in keeping sewer drains on or near your property clear and free from leaves, trash and other debris. Clean drains allow water to run freely and help to prevent flooding.
- If you use a portable generator, review safety guidelines HERE.
- Review the steps to plan and prepare for an outage at https://www.ready.gov/power-outages
Businesses that have erected tents and placed tables outside should take precautions to ensure that these items are secure.
