City Announces New Emergency Plan

According to an anonymous source, the office of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has just authorized the purchase of twenty thousand snow shovels. The shovels will be handed out to policemen, firemen and EMS personnel and will be used to facilitate emergency responses during snowstorms. All responders will be required to carry the snow shovels on their persons at all times from the beginning of the winter solstice to the arrival of the vernal equinox.

During snow emergencies responders will be mustered and made to clear paths to and from police stations, fire houses and hospitals to all communities within the five boroughs.

Labor union leaders announced that they would present the first shovel to hizzoner in a ceremony to be held at Gracie Mansion as soon as the streets have been cleared. No date was set for the festivities.
