(NECN) - Throughout the duration of this snowstorm additional EMT's, paramedics and ambulances will be on standby in Boston, ready to tend to anyone who may be in need assistance this weekend.

Steve McHugh, Deputy Superintendent of Boston EMS, urges everyone to check in on neighbors, the sick, the elderly and children as the storm intensifies. Officials stress the importance of dressing in layers if going outside.

McHugh says staying off the roads is important, though remembering not to leave kids in the car while cleaning off snow is a must in order to avoid carbon monoxide issues.
