TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL - Crews in Tuscaloosa County are on standby ahead of a potential winter weather event Monday night into Tuesday.

Allen Springer from the Tuscaloosa County Public Works Department said workers have replenished all deicing and sand materials for the road. The department has also secured extra spreader trucks if needed. About 100 tons of deicing sand is available, along with various de-icing and salt agents for the roads.

Meanwhile, the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is also in winter storm preparation.  The department has gassed up all 14 of its four-wheel drive vehicles. Chainsaws are also available and ready to remove any trees that may fall due to ice. Lt. Andy Norris said officers on patrol Monday afternoon and evening will have four-wheel drive cars.

If anyone needs the sheriff’s department for a non-emergency should call 205-752-0616.
