Winter Storm Message from the City Manager
From Suzanne Ludlow, City Manager of Takoma Park
Dear Takoma Park Residents,
The storm will be here soon. Please take these last few hours to move your cars off the road if possible, get any remaining medicines, food, and supplies you need, and prepare to stay inside until Sunday.
During the storm, if there is a medical or fire emergency, call 911. If there is a downed tree, wires down, or other hazardous situation, please call the Takoma Park Police Department at 301-270-1100. Calling or emailing the Public Works department, your Councilmembers or me will not get the best response to a hazardous situation.
City offices and facilities are closing at noon. The Police Department remains open for emergency services and the Police lobby will remain open to the public. It is located at the front lower level entrance of the Community Center at 7500 Maple Avenue.
We will be housing our first shifts of essential employees nearby so that we have staff here throughout the storm. Our primary effort will be to try to keep main streets passable for emergency services through Saturday. Unless there is an emergency situation, do not go out onto the streets on Saturday.
Stay safe – we’re all in this together!
