Emergency Responders Brace for Power Outages
Emergency responders are preparing for possible blackouts that could happen if ice brings down trees and power lines.
Officials are hiring people to prepare for possible power outages.
The emergency responders are looking ahead to storms coming into the area. The Deputy Chief May of the Rochester Fire Department said, “stay inside because of down trees, downed wires. You can’t tell if they’re live or dead.”
Emergency responders in the Rochester area are preparing for another storm. They are urging people in the area to limit travel, and they say that bridges will be a concern because roads over bridges tend to freeze.
They say that people can call 311 if they have an issue that isn’t an emergency. They want people to not tie up the line for emergency responders, so, for non-emergencies, they say people should call 311 instead of 911.
