***The State of Emergency for the Town of Irondequoit has been rescinded as of Thursday, March 16***
With the State of Emergency ended and storms behind us, we will continue to keep this page up as a resource for those still dealing with effects of the March storms. Please note the additional resources listed on the right of this page.
- BRUSH PICKUP: Please place debris at street edge. Our crews will be going street by street picking up debris as time allows. At this point we do not have a set timeline for pickup. Town crews have been working hard to clear roadways and sidewalks of fallen trees and limbs. Residents have been helpful in observing and notifying the Town of such obstructions by calling 336-6090 and should continue to do so.
- HOME DAMAGE: Residents and businesses that sustained property or electrical service damage from the storm are encouraged to call the Building Department at (585) 336-6026 to find out what permit(s) and/or inspections, if any, may be needed for their repairs.
- SOCIAL MEDIA: Residents are encouraged to follow the Town’s Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.
All warming stations have been closed at this time. The Irondequoit Public Library will be open normal hours.
All overnight shelters have been closed at this time.
As of Tuesday, March 14 we are not aware of any road closures related to the damages from the March 8th wind storm.
Intersection Power Failures:
As of Monday, March 13 all intersection power failures caused by the March 8th wind storm have been fixed to the best of our knowledge.
We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our residents. We've heard many stories of neighbors helping neighbors and we've had numerous people reach out to see how they can help.
At this time we are no longer in need of donations. Thank you to all that donated!
Looking for a way to help? We are in need of volunteers for several jobs throughout the weekend. Please see below for more information.

IN THE EVENT OF DAMAGE TO YOUR HOME FROM A STORM:
- First and Foremost, ensure the safety of yourself and any other individuals in or around the property. Contact the local authorities; police, fire, etc. and follow any instructions provided.
- Once the structure is properly secured by emergency personnel, you should contact your insurance provider as soon as you are able.
Each provider and policy is different, so be sure to speak with your provider directly to identify the proper procedures for successfully completing a claim.
However, the New York State Department of Financial Services does suggest some best practices for the following situations:
- What to do before/after a loss
- Maintaining Adequate Insurance
- Adjusters, Appraisers & Umpires
- Cancellations & Non-Renewals
- Filing a Complaint with NYS DFS
- Renters Insurance
