Forsyth County Commissioner Todd Levent posted:

Please consider Public Safety Official’s Safety and workload with the incoming weather. This storm will create major challenges, so please do not add to the challenges. Stay at home unless getting in your vehicle is absolutely necessary.

E-911 calls and emergency services will be overwhelmed. They are preparing for high winds, ice, snow, fallen trees, and powerlines.

Commissioner Levent’s wife Dana and her co-workers have been called into the E-911 center until sometime Tuesday. “She has packed clothes for three days. Fire trucks and patrol cars will have chainsaws on board to cut trees out of their way just to answer one call to the next.”

The Public Works Department employees will also be overwhelmed trying to keep the roads as clear as possible.

Please stay at home if possible!
