Emergency Management gears up for snow

CLAREMORE — Rogers County is preparing for another round of winter weather and Interim Emergency Management Director Kelly Deal cautions the public to be prepared.

“It is important to be ready before the storm hits,” Deal said. “If you do not need to get out, then stay home.”
Deal reports that Rogers County is expected to see two to six inches of snow according to a briefing from the state weather service.
The snow is expected to begin at approximately 3 a.m and continue until 6 a.m., he added. A winter weather advisory is in effect until noon, Tuesday.
Deal said that he has activated the Emergency Management Center and is preparing for any change in the weather. The EOC will be working to coordinate with road crews throughout the night.
Rogers County Commissioner Kirt Thacker said that District 3 is gearing up for the snow.
“Last week we were able to clear all the roads in the district in one shift,” Thacker said.
Thacker recently purchased six new snowplow trucks for his district.
Local EMS providers could be working directly with road workers to insure that they are ready to respond if needed, according to Deal.
The EOC will be monitoring the situation for possible power outages and coordinating shelter efforts if necessary with the Red Cross.
