STATEMENT BY TRENTON MAYOR ERIC JACKSON ON KEEPING
SAFE DURING THE WINTER STORM CONDITIONS
Last night’s several inches of snowfall and today’s high winds and bitter cold pose a danger to city residents. I am urging all of you to stay home and off the roads on Sunday, particularly as state, county and Trenton municipal governments engage in snow-removal operations. Please bring your pets indoors and be careful not to overexert yourself when shoveling snow. If you have elderly friends, check on them. Do not use the oven or kerosene heat as sources of heat. Do not use a space heater indoors that requires combustible fuel. If you are a tenant with no heat and your landlord is unresponsive, call (609) 989-3560 and leave a message. Our city’s Chief Housing Inspector will return your call quickly. If you need emergency assistance, dial 911. If you require non-emergency assistance, call (609) 989-4170. The city will use its “Emergency Broadcast System” as needed, to convey important information to city residents who have signed up to receive messages from the system. Residents who have not signed up, can do so at trentonnj.org. If you experience a power outage, call PSE&G at 1-800-436-PSEG. Remember, be kind and considerate to your neighbors and, if you are able, lend a helping hand.
