All public safety operations in the field will cease once the winds reach a sustained speed of 60 miles per hour. These conditions are too risky to the safety of law enforcement, fire, and EMS personnel. If you have a life threatening emergency, call 911; operators will be available to answer your call and to dispatch assistance as conditions permit. For non-life threatening emergencies and storm related information, however, the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will be operational and able to provide information as long as the communications network remains operational. Remember, waiting to leave may not only jeopardize your life but also the lives of others. Once the wind speed is below 60 miles per hour and conditions improve, public safety crews will once again respond to emergency calls.
