Snow & Cold Forecast in Firestone
This evening we saw our first trace of snow this season, and we expect to see a bit more snow fall overnight. With the warm temperatures we've had in the past few weeks, we do not anticipate the weather causing much concern. Over the past few weeks, the Town of Firestone Public Works Department has been preparing all of their equipment to handle snow events this season – and they are ready!
Staff will be monitoring the weather and road conditions throughout the night and early morning and will address areas of concern if needed.
Below are a few reminders and resources about snow removal within the Town of Firestone.
Reminders & Resources
- View information on the Town of Firestone's Snow Removal Operations and the snow route map at www.firestoneco.gov/snow.
- Move Vehicles from Snow Routes: Help the Town in its snow removal operations by moving vehicles from priority snow routes.
- Give Snow Plows Plenty of Room to Work: The Firestone Public Works snow plow team will work efficiently to clear roadways of snow for safe passage. If you meet a snowplow on the roads, please use caution and maintain a safe distance between your vehicle and the plow.
- Snow Buddies: If you're age 60+ and are unable to shovel your driveway and sidewalks after a snowstorm, the Carbon Valley Parks & Recreation District has a Snow Buddies program that will find a community volunteer to shovel for you. This program is always looking for volunteers to help. Find more information about the program here.
