There’s a call to arms going out in Cranbrook for residents to grab their shovels and help clear snow.
The City says they are hosting an Open House Tuesday with Representatives from Canadian Mental Health’s “Snow Angels” volunteer team.
The group helps remove snow from driveways, walkways and sidewalks for those who aren’t able to do it themselves.
Staff will also discuss the City’s volunteer program around equipment signup and registration, along with efforts for extraordinary snow events, use of salt and sand, priority snowplowing routes and customer service.
Information will also be provided about Cranbrook’s annual snow removal operations.
The forum goes 5-7 PM at the Manual Training Centre.
Depending on the weather, the city will also have several pieces of its snow removal fleet for the public to see and kids to climb on and look at.
