Emergency Management

NORMAL MAINTENANCE OF PRIVATE DRIVES, LANES AND ROADS

Residents are responsible for maintaining private lanes, roads and drives at all times throughout the year. This includes any grading, stoning, blacktopping (if applicable), snow removal and damage occurring from various weather conditions. It is important that these accesses remain in good condition so that in the event of an emergency, Ambulance, Fire and Police can gain access to provide assistance. It is important to remember that some home owner's insurance companies will consider the access conditions when quoting and offering insurance to your property.

Emergency responders are not responsible when accesses or are poorly maintained. Delays due to access conditions may result in additional property damage from fire, delayed response from police or even death when emergency medical services can not make quick access.

Below you will find some suggested guidelines for maintenance of private drives, lanes and roads.

a) Keep all accesses cleared to a width of 10 Feet, this is a suggested drive lane width

b) Keep all trees and brush cleared outside the ten foot width

c) Have the surface of the travel path smooth, and free of ruts if the surface is not paved

d) Stoning the surface is suggested to avoid muddy conditions during rain storms

e) Clear all overhead trees, branches and other obstacles to a height of 14 feet from the travel surface to permit fire, ambulance and utility vehicles entry as if needed.

f) Remove all snow, ice and other storm related debris as quickly as possible after the weather occurrence. A good rule of thumb is, if a two wheel drive vehicle can not gain access, chances are emergency services will be unable to gain access.

g) If you have additional questions please contact the Chanceford Township Office or the Emergency Management Coordinator.
