Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone (left) and Chief Fire Engineer Kevin Kelleher ask residents to help ensure the City's safety by shoveling walkways and hydrants in your neighborhood.
Shovel the width of your sidewalk a minimum of 42 inches wide to allow safe passage for all
Use sand or clay/sand-based kitty litter to make sidewalks less slippery
Somerville DPW provides sand at key locations throughout the City. Look for the blue barrels on sidewalks/corners.
Use an ice pick to clear what a shovel cannot
If you live on a corner lot, you are required to clear handicap ramps at crosswalks
