“As the winter storm begins to dump over two feet of snow in our region, the primary concern is keeping the residents safe,” states Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue Chief Kevin McGee. PWL The storm will produce snow and sleet which could result in downed trees, power outages and blocked roads. “We’re requesting residents to take the threat of this storm seriously by taking the necessary precautions to ensure not only their safety but the safety of those who are out in the storm assisting those in need, i.e,. road crews and local first responders. Driving conditions are hazardous and we urge motorists to stay off the roads until the storm passes.”

Staying off the roads:

  • Reduces fire and rescue response time to citizens requiring emergency services.
  • Allows VDOT crews, equipment and materials to treat and plow the roads.
  • Reduces traffic crashes allowing county and state police to respond to storm-related emergencies.

As a community, neighbor helping neighbor– Help Us Help You to stay safe by staying off the roads.
