Snow Clearing

Kitimat's annual snowfall may seem exceptional, but the Public Works Department keeps main roads clear of snow and clears residential streets on a daily basis.  Pedestrian walkways and sidewalks are also cleared regularly.

Snow Removal Safety

No matter how safe we try to make snow clearing operations, the only way to stay safe is to stay well back from snow removal equipment.    A close encounter with a blower, grader or plow truck is likely to be terrifying and may have deadly consequences.  Please review the Snow Removal Safety pamphlet with your family each winter as a reminder of the precautions to take.
