In anticipation of today’s storm, the New Castle Police are asking our residents to avoid travelling today.  This keeps the roads open for emergency responders, makes it easier for snow removal equipment to clear our roads and allows vehicles that are already on the road to safely reach their destinations.

In the event of life-threatening emergencies, dial 911. 

To report downed wires, road blockages and non-life-threatening issues, contact (914) 238-4422.  Treat all downed wires as if they are live. Be mindful that downed wires can be hidden from view by tree limbs, leaves or snow.

Please do not call the Police if you lose power.  Calling the Police to report a power loss only serves to tie up emergency telephone lines and you will be referred to contact Con Edison directly at 1-800-75-CONED.  Calling Con Edison directly enters your power loss into their computerized data base.  You can also report outages, view outages map and check outage status at   

Check on your neighbors who are frail, alone or may be in need of additional help.  Make sure they are prepared and stay safe during the storm.  New York State provides a full list of emergency supplies for your home and vehicles.

The New Castle Police Department maintains a voluntary list of people who may require additional help and would like to be checked on during extreme weather.  If you or someone you know would like to be added to this list, call (914) 238-4422.

If you have not already done so, sign up for Nixle at or text your zip code to 88877 for mobile only alerts, and sign up for CodeRED at
