Mayor Moshe Leon instructed the city's divisions to prepare for the winter weather. 

The city's emergency headquarters completes its preparations for the weather, even if the weather intensifies beyond the forecast. He also recommends that the residents maintain safety, prepare for the stormy weather and listen to instructions distributed in the media. If the snow falls, the municipality is ready to handle it.

The residents and business owners are asked to keep streets clean, not to throw cartons and garbage bags out of the garbage cans for fear of blocking the drainage openings. Cut trees and branches in private gardens in close proximity to the cables and remove the cuttings in a regulated manner, check the safety of electrical systems and equip them with emergency lighting and heating kits. It is important to strengthen antennas, solar water heaters and other objects on the roofs and balconies.

Recommended: check the health of the heating system - especially those requiring ventilation. Ensure that roofs and openings (windows and shutters) are sealed, as well as to clean and open water drainage cells in courtyards and gutters on roofs.

Objects that are not kept and may fall from a high place or fly such as flowerpots / planters, furniture and signs. Avoid staying under sheds, pergolas, huts or temporary structures.

The cages in the urban quarantine are heated 24 hours a day and extra food is given to cats and dogs to help them cope with the winter weather.
