Along with the snow comes added work for the New City Fire Department
Assistant Chief James Avaras said the firefighters have been out on the roads since the snow started falling Saturday morning, and stayed out until about midnight. He said they started back Sunday morning at around 7:30 a.m.
The biggest issue they’ve seen is the down power lines, which Avaras said is obviously important not to touch. He also said they’ve seen a lot of down trees, and have been working to get generators to those who are on life support.
As of Sunday night, Avaras said there was still a lot to be done, but he had one immediate focus.
“I’m tired, we’ve been at this a long time,” he said. “I’m just trying to get to sleep soon so I can head out again in the morning.”
