   The City of Charlottetown Emergency Measures team and EMO partners remain focused on coordinated recovery and clean up efforts . While work crews continue to focus on clearing roadways and approach the finish line in their efforts to make all city streets passable , significant work remains to be done . The support and generosity that the community , our partners , and local businesses have shown over these past few days continue to energize crews as work continues .
   Recovery and Clean Up Efforts
   Public Works cre......ws , the City’s Urban Forestry team , and off - Island support from the City of Fredericton and Moncton have been on the ground since first light again today and continue recovery and clean up efforts . In terms of progress , approximately 95 per cent of roads have been cleared . While most streets are passable , some will remain closed for now due to hazardous debris and downed power lines .
   As we look ahead to the next phase of recovery efforts , the City’s Urban Forestry team is out this morning identifying trees that are damaged and at risk of falling . Parks and Recreation crews are also out continuing their assessment of damage to parks and playgrounds .
   Reception Centres
   The City has reopened its three Reception Centres that are providing some comforts such as Wi - Fi , municipal water ( bring your own drinking container ) , small snacks and power to charge personal devices . Since they opened , nearly 8 , 500 visits have been made to the City’s three Reception Centres .
   Please note that the hours of the Reception Centres have changed today to 8 a . m . - 8 p . m .
   The following Reception Centres are open until 8 p . m . today:
   Hillsborough Park Community Centre ( 199 Patterson Dr )
   Malcolm J . Darrach Community Centre ( 1 Avonlea Dr )
   Confederation Centre of the Arts ( 145 Richmond St )
   Safety Reminders
   Important and essential safety reminders include:
   • Limit travel to essential travel only . Travelling throughout the City before and after daylight is strongly discouraged .
   • Slow down on the roadways and treat non - working traffic signals as a four - way stop .
   • Barbeques and cooking appliances are not to be used indoors , and this includes garages and balconies .
   • Generators must be used outdoors and away from any building openings .
   • Do not attempt to clear trees or branches away from downed power lines .
   • Do not pile debris on the roadway , sidewalks , the shoulder of the road , or in cycling lanes . If it safe to do so , please place manageably sized debris in 4 - foot , manageable bundles ( maximum 50 pounds ) on the side of the road . This will help City crews during the lengthy clean up process ahead .
   • Municipal water is safe to drink , however please conserve water and limit usage as much as possible . The less water enters the system , the easier it is for our Water and Sewer Utility to maintain service .
   • Stay out of parks and off of playgrounds until further notice . With roadways as the current priority , work crews will assess parks and park infrastructure in the coming days .
   Reporting a Municipal Issue
   To report an issue with Public Works or Water and Sewer Utility , please call our mainline at 902 - 566 - 5548 . Residents can also call this line with any questions or concerns . For any emergency situations , residents are advised to call 911 .
