Winter Weather

Due to the Winter Weather conditions of combined snow, wind and cold temperatures the City of Dunkirk Police Department reminds residents and motorists to please be very careful if you have to travel or be outside. Snow and wind can create whiteout conditions on the roadways. The cold temperatures and wind chill can create dangerous health issues if your vehicle gets stuck or you are outside for an extended period of time.

If there is no need to travel or be outside please stay home and do not venture out. If you must travel make sure you have a full tank of gas, a charged cell phone and warm clothing.  Please pay attention to the changing weather and road conditions. Plan extra time, clear snow from your vehicle, slow down, wear your seatbelt and leave extra room between your vehicle and others on the roadway. If you have to be outside limit that time and dress in warm layers with hat and gloves. Please make sure your pets are inside during these extreme conditions.

We also remind our City Residents to please adhere to Alternate and Overnight Parking regulations as this will greatly assist our DPW with keeping the roads plowed and allow access for Emergency Vehicles. Please yield the right of way to our Snow Plow Operators.

Following these guidelines will keep you safe and will help keep all our Emergency Services Personnel safe as well.

Thank you for your cooperation and stay safe.
