LivCo Sol

Resident Information

The residents of Livingston County, New York should be prepared for the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024. This page will continue to be updated, so locals can find helpful information such as road closures, school schedules, and business operations.

 

TIPS FOR RESIDENTS

  • Traffic will be heavy and lines for local services such as restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, and retail stores may be longer than usual; do what you can ahead of time before the anticipated impact days and allow for extra time to get where you need to go.
  • Things to consider doing in advance of the heaviest congestion periods:
    • Errands & Appointments: Schedule your errands and appointments early, before Thursday, April 4, 2024, if possible. Check ahead if you have plans for Monday, April 8, 2024; some services and businesses will be closed or have limited hours during this time. By scheduling your errands early, you will beat the crowds and give local stores and businesses time to restock before eclipse visitors arrive; this includes grocery shopping, appointments, prescriptions, etc.
    • Supplies: Overall, supplies may be limited due to the high demand; which may mean the items you want are not available during the impact days. If there is something important you need, get it early.
    • Gas: If you normally fill up your tank on the weekend, be sure to do that task early, before Thursday, April 4, 2024.
    • Cash: If you regularly use cash or want some on hand, consider visiting your local bank or ATM before Thursday, April 4, 2024.
  • 911: Know when it is appropriate to call 911 (true emergencies) and have the non-emergency phone number for your local Dispatch Center programmed into your phone ahead of time. The non-emergency phone number for Livingston County Deputy Sheriff is (585) 243-7100.
  • Cellular Service: With the increased number of visitors, local public safety officials anticipate cellular service may become overwhelmed (primarily Monday, April 8, 2024) or have limited access during the impact days. Consider these ideas to assist with communications during this time: Develop a communication plan with family and friends if you lose or have limited service. If you only have a mobile phone at home, find out which of your neighbors have a land-line number in case you need to call 911 for an emergency.
  • Public Water Systems: Consider postponing watering your lawn or using “extra” water during the anticipated impact days to take pressure off the public water system during that time.
  • Individual/Family Emergency Plans: Consider the eclipse event to be an opportunity to check your emergency kits and emergency plans. If you do not have a kit or have not discussed your emergency plans, now is an opportune time to do so.
