PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (EMA) recommends that Rhode Islanders lend a helping hand to friends, family, or neighbors that may need assistance.

Rhode Islanders can help friends, family, and neighbors do the following:

  • Clear driveways, sidewalks, and walkways of snow and ice.
  • Clear snow from areas around furnace vents to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Make sure generators are properly vented and are being used according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Go to a shelter if you do not have heat or power in your home. For a list of shelters in the area, click this link.
  • Make sure outdoor pets have a supply of water that is not frozen.
  • Continue to check for updates about power outages/storm cleanup.
