Take A Load Off
Every year thousands of fires result from the misuse and overloading of power cords, power strips and surge protectors. Get in the habit of unplugging.

Beware of Falling Ice

Beware of Falling Ice

Due to warmer temperatures expected in the NYC area today, Wednesday, February 19, 2014 through the upcoming weekend, Maxons is reminding all property owners to safely remove ice and snow from roofs, overhangs and awnings. Water from melting snow that collects on roofs can present a threat to the structural integrity of a building if the accumulated weight becomes too great.

Rain and warmer temperatures can increase the threat of ice dislodging and falling from buildings. Icicles could form and pose a threat to public safety if not promptly removed. Property owners have a legal responsibility to consider the safety of their buildings, and this obligation includes removing ice that may come loose during warm weather.

Please call 311 to report non-compliant conditions or 911 to report emergencies at construction sites or buildings.
