Use Facebook to alert your friends

What type of Snow Emergency person are you?

How you act during a Snow Emergency could say a lot about you. We want you to share your Snow Emergency personality with your friends on Facebook, and also with us.

STEP 1: Create an image that shows what kind of Snow Emergency you are. Make sure it includes a Snow Emergency logo in it (download the Snow Emergency logo).

STEP 2: When a Snow Emergency is declared, change your Facebook profile picture to that image so all your friends will know a Snow Emergency has been declared.

STEP 3: In the meantime, send us the Facebook picture you created, explaining what kind of Snow Emergency you are. E-mail it to [email protected] and we’ll post it to the Snow Emergency profile on Facebook for all to see.
