With this week's winter storm quickly approaching, the Town of Raymond would like to remind you of some safety tips and preparedness actions:
- Restock and have on hand basic essentials such as drinking water, basic nonperishable food supplies as well as flashlights/batteries on hand;
- Keep generators away from and exhaust pointed away from buildings stay away from downed lines (see this month's Fire Safety Tip for more information);
- If you come across a downed powerline, remember that you cannot see electricity and it should be treated as live at all times;
- In the event of a power outage, never leave candles or lanterns unattended and make sure to have a fire extinguisher close by;
- As always, conduct regular tests of the batteries in your smoke/carbon monoxide detectors.
The Town of Raymond will do its best to keep roads clear and safe for travel, but we ask for your help by only going out during the storm in the most necessary cases. If you must go out, be sure to pack winter clothing, blankets, water/snacks, a shovel and a cell phone charger (if applicable). Also, a reminder that winter sand is not available during the storm event (see here for more information).
Please check website, Facebook and local news stations of closure and status updates.
Call 911 in the event of an emergency.
Thank you for your consideration.

Dog licensing can now be done in the office or online!
If you have a dog over the age of 6 months, it must be licensed. A Rabies Certificate must be produced and if neutered, a Neutering Certificate (if the Town Office doesn’t have it on file). All Rabies vaccinations for adult dogs now cover three years of protection with proof of previous vaccination.
The fee for an altered dog (spayed or neutered) is $6.00 and non-altered is $11.00.
All dogs must be licensed by January 31, of each year.
Dogs licensed after January 31 will incur an additional $25.00 late fee.
Please understand that by having your dog licensed, anyone finding your stray pet will be able to trace it to you, thereby reducing the possibility that it will go to a shelter. Licensing funds contribute to stray animal care in the town and state, and supports the State Veterinarian Laboratory in Augusta as well as Maine State Humane Agents which investigate animal abuse cases.
Please note that the last day to register at the Town Office is Friday, January 30th, 8:00am to 4:00pm. Please contact Town Clerk Sue Look for more information at 207-655-4742 x 121.
