Mayor Greg Hansen Speaks on Preparedness

Thursday, November 25, 2021

In looking at the developing forecast for heavy rains and a rising river, Mayor Greg Hansen issued a statement today, “City staff and Public Works crews are on standby today and in the days to follow with all available resources ready to respond if river levels make this necessary.  I encourage individuals to also do what they can to prepare themselves and to help their neighbors.  If you are within a flood area, be prepared to secure your vehicles and belongings. Ferndale residents can also help by cleaning leaves and other debris from around the storm drains near your home.  Please check on your neighbors.  Watch for road closure notices before leaving home, and be patient with each other as this weather evolves.  We will continue to monitor this situation and will provide updates as they become available through our website and Facebook page.”
