Snow Removal Best Practices: Planning

Originally posted on January 03, 2013

Snow professionals develop plans on how to prioritize areas, which define areas that should be cleared first, second, third, etc. This is a particularly helpful best practice when responding to heavier storms or blizzard conditions. When identifying priority snow removal areas, pros include items such as the location of wheel chair access ramps, fire hydrants, emergency exits, emergency egresses, and access to utilities. Snow site plans also identify where the snow is to be located and piled relevant to line-of-site issues, handicap parking areas, and drainage locations.
