Snow Emergency Levels

Pursuant to Attorney General Opinion 86-023, the Sheriff of a county may declare a snow emergency and temporarily close county and township roads within his jurisdiction for the preservation of the public peace.

Keeping this in mind, there has been some confusion as to what a snow emergency actually means.

LEVEL 1:

Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads are also icy. Drive very cautiously.

 

LEVEL 2:

Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roadways. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.

 

LEVEL 3:

All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roadways may subject themselves to arrest.

 

Call this number in case of an Emergency!!!
