Preparing for the potential to have winter weather

Posted: Updated:
Last week’s weather brought confusion and chaos. With the potential for more winter weather, Jefferson County EMA Emergency Manager Horace Walker says they are going to monitor the weather service to see what it predicts.

Walker also says being prepared is key, “We always go out and we try to tell people and train people in preparedness, that you have to be prepared and take care of yourself and your family, and that’s the main thing is that if the people are prepared and they can take care of themselves it makes our job a lot easier and it can give us the time frame in order to give them the assistance that they may need.”

Though the weather is not expected to be as severe as last week, the potential may have many planning for the worst with hopes for the best.
