Preparing for Winter

Prepare for a safe and warm winter with the Jerusalem Municipality


The municipality provides you with useful and necessary information and tips for a healthy and safe winter.

As part of the preparations, the municipal teams are carrying out many activities, such as pruning work which was completed before the start of the shmita year. If necessary, additional pruning work will be carried out, in order to avoid collapsing trees and branches, damage to inhabitants, electrical networks, vehicles and buildings.

Recently, municipal drainage and sewer systems have been opened to prevent flooding. In the municipal warehouses, the equipment and the stock of salt necessary to prevent freezing of roads that could be caused by the drop in temperatures have been completed.3

Night patrols to locate the homeless have intensified and, if necessary, will be evacuated to the rented rooms where they will be accommodated. The municipality also maintains telephone contact with residents to ensure their condition and their preparation for winter.

For inquiries and to report a danger, contact Call Center 106 available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
