Winter Weather Safety
The Amherst Center for Senior Services encourages its members & visitors to be informed when it comes to winter weather.  If you want to know if Center activities are canceled or closed during bad weather, listen for weather closing announcements on WBEN-AM 930, WNED-FM 94.5, WKSE-FM 98.5 or WTSS-FM 102.5.  Also TV stations: WGRZ-TV Channel 2, WIVB-TV Channel 4 and WKBW-TV Channel 7.  In addition the Center maintains an Update Line at 636-3055 extension 3128.


Be Prepared for Emergencies
The Northtowns may have been missed by the huge storm last week but it's important to be prepared for what lies ahead ~ especially high winds that could also lead to power outages.

Please complete the EMERGENCY RESPONSE DATA FORM here and submit it so that the Town knows how to respond in emergency situations.
