NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Forecasters are expecting Long Island to get dumped with up to four inches of snow on Friday. County Executive Edward Mangano said Nassau is ready to keep the streets safe, but residents can help by keeping cars off the road.

The county will activate the non-emergency hotline beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday to assist in any snow-related situation that is not life-threatening or an emergency.

Mangano is also encouraging any resident who needs shelter to call the warm bed hotline for assistance.

Important Nassau County Phone Numbers:

888-684-4274 – Nassau County non-emergency hotline
1-866-WARM-BED – Nassau County warm bed hotline

“The lines of communication in Nassau County are open,” said Mangano. “We want to ensure every resident is safe, and we are made aware of any situation that could create danger in the community.”

All emergency calls should be placed to 911.
