Citizens Urged to Prepare for Winter Weather

Cordell Emergency Management Director Daniel Allen has designated Wednesday, November 13th, 2013 as "Winter Weather Preparedness Day" in Cordell and urges citizens to prepare for the upcoming winter weather season.

"In recent years we’ve experienced winter weather storms, including devastating ice storms and blizzards," Allen said. "We all need to be aware of these natural threats we face in our community and take responsibility to make sure we are properly prepared when disaster strikes."

The Cordell Emergency Management Department has joined with the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the National Weather Service and other agencies to raise public awareness about what can be done to prepare for hazardous winter weather. Individuals or groups who would like to host a program to help become better prepared should call the Cordell Emergency Management at (580) 832-2121.
