Hurricane Sandy Storm Update - Sunday October 28 @ 4:30 PM
The upcoming storm will contain very high wind conditions and likely power outages  for the Concord area.  Residents should note the following precautions:

·        The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) has issued power outage precautions.  They can be found at http://www.mass.gov/eopss/agencies/mema/incident-information/sandy-october-2012/mema-issues-power-outage-safety-tips.html

·        In the case of a power outage please make an effort to conserve both water and the creation of wastewater.  This will help Concord officials as we endeavor to reestablish services.

·        Plan to stay safely indoors throughout the course of the storm, beginning Sunday night and through Tuesday morning. Ensure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors have fresh batteries and are operable.

·        If you use a generator, be sure to operate it outdoors or in a well-ventilated area.  Be sure to shut off your main power supply to your home when running your generator.

·        Do not use gas stoves or candles as heat or light sources.
