I was watching the news this evening and couldn't help but notice how professional and compassionate the two officers and chief were when they found a mother who had overdosed on the side of the road.... Thanks to these officers and the nurse who stopped this mother may have a chance at changing her life. Again great job helping her and not making a mockery of the situation like other police departments around the country!!! See More

Message from Richmond EMA:

As of this hour, we are expecting snow to continue through the day until this evening, measuring between 12-16" totals however, we are expecting a great deal of drifting and possible power outages.

What has happened:


1. The Governor has closed state gov't today and encouraging everyone to stay home. THERE IS NOT A FULL TRAVEL BAN AT THIS TIME. Please stay off of the roads
2. Local Gov't is closed. If needed, we will open the Senior Center as a warming center.
3. Schools are closed. There are no afternoon activities
4. There is a Tractor-trailer ban along the Route 95 corridor. This means we may see heavy then normal traffic along Rt 138, Route 3 and Exit 3. Please, if you have to be on the road exercise extreme caution.
5. Do not be fooled by light drifting snow; especially while shoveling. Take your time and hydrate. Avoid using your hand to clear the snowblower, the snowblower will win!
6. In the event of power outages, please dial National Grid at 800-465-1212...This will assist in tracking down potential breaks in our lines and locate problems quicker.
7. Do not drive over any downed power lines under any circumstances. A NJ man was killed during the last storm when he drove over a live wire. HEED road cones.
8. Please shovel around your home heating vents and keep them clear. Keep oil fill pipes open. Check your smoke and CO alarms.
9. Please check your neighbors. One of the greatest attributes of Richmond is our sense of community. A little kindness goes a long way.
10. If you're outside, wear appropriate clothing. Dress in layers and dress to be SEEN.
11. Lastly, if you loose power don’t run your generator in doors including the garage, don’t back-feed the electrical system and use extreme caution when refueling a hot generator.

Be patient. We'll get through this together.

Thanks to Exeter EMA for sharing much of this information.
