Jerusalem Municipality completes winter preparations

The Jerusalem Municipality’s Division of Emergency and Safety has completed its winter preparations, with an emphasis on flood-control, water-proofing roofs, snow preparedness, cleaning gutters, pruning trees and ensuring pets are adequately heated during inclement weather. 
In a Sunday statement, the municipality advised residents and business owners to proactively take safety precautions, including safeguarding electrical equipment, securing elevated objects from high winds, cleaning all water-drainage equipment and ensuring water pipes do not freeze.
The municipality also requested that the public refrain from any movement that could result in injury, including driving or walking during severe storms. Further information, including emergency instructions, can be accessed at the municipality’s website.
