Brick police are thanking township residents for staying off the roads during last night’s snowfall and moving their cars off the street. Those actions led to easier responses to 19 calls for service during the storm.

Sgt. Henry Drew said responding to the calls was made “significantly easier” by residents obeying a statewide travel ban and moving their cars off township streets.

The 19 calls (between 8 p.m. Monday and 6 a.m. Tuesday) included:

  • 7     First Aid Calls
  • 4     Motor Vehicle Complaints
  • 3     Alarm Calls
  • 3     Suspicious Person Calls
  • 1     Motor Vehicle Accident
  • 1    Assault

The travel ban was lifted this morning. Brick received varying amounts of snowfall depending on the neighborhood, but generally between four and six inches – a far cry from the 36 inches predicted on Sunday.
