BRAMPTON: Winter weather has arrived and Brampton’s crews are ready!
City teams have been working around the clock to ensure the City is prepared to clear City-owned roads, sidewalks, transit stops, recreational trails and school crossings, so that residents can get to where they are going safely.
The City reminds residents that being winter-ready is a team effort:
• In case of emergency, be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for at least 72 hours. Prepare a 72-hour safety kit for your home and vehicle.
• Clear sidewalks of ice, snow, and slush promptly;
• Parking on streets is not allowed and will be enforced during winter weather events. Please move vehicles to ensure plows, salters and emergency vehicles can safely pass by;
• If it has been more than 24 hours since the snowfall has ended and your street still requires attention, let the City know by calling 311, submitting a service request on the 311 mobile app, emailing email@example.com, or visiting www.311brampton.ca;
• Snow removal financial assistance is available to eligible seniors and homeowners with physical disabilities. Learn more: ow.ly/D2R050xgPq2. In 2019, Brampton City Council approved increasing service levels on local roads from 7.5 cm accumulation to 5.0 cm, meaning crews are dispatched sooner during a winter weather event.
