Emergency management coordinator urges people to be prepared in storms
Winter Storm Draco left many people in Jasper County without power, and many citizens called emergency services for help. The problem with calling emergency services for non-emergency situations is that it can tie up resources that are needed elsewhere, and most problems can be avoided with proper planning.
“The only thing between people and panic is a plan,” Jasper County Emergency Management Coordinator Jim Sparks said.
Emergency services are usually stretched thin during a snow storm, and it can take time to reach those in need. Jasper County had citizens without power, and others were stranded on the road.
