Please stay off the roads today so that road crews and emergency vehicles

Please stay off the roads today so that road crews and emergency vehicles

Sunday evening, January 24, 2015

Still need to encourage folks to take a chill pill. A snowstorm of historic proportions just stopped hours ago. Be patient and stay home.

Everyone in the emergency response community is sensitive to family members with medical conditions; however, at this time, public works snow removal personnel, fire, police, and emergency medical services are stretched to the limit and in too many situations are struggling to respond to current requests for services…

Earlier today, Carroll County government and the City of Taneytown said it well, “Please stay off the roads today so that road crews and emergency vehicles may traverse the roads as needed, unimpeded. The roads are still impassible in many areas and personal vehicles getting stuck is not helping the roads get cleared any faster. Stay home, stay warm. Drink cocoa!

As Governor Larry Hogan said in a recent release, “I want to thank Marylanders for the common sense they have shown thus far… I want to urge people to continue to stay off of the roads unless travel is absolutely essential. It is still very dangerous out there and stalled and abandoned vehicles make it that much harder for snow plow operators. Your safety is our top priority.”

@HMongilio Nice job on snow coverage in Carroll Co Md – Folks need to be patient stay home!
