Crete Fire Chief Mike Waterman said on Monday that the Village of Crete would put additional measures in place to prepare for the upcoming snowstorm.
“The Village of Crete, the Crete Fire Department, the Crete Police Department, Crete Public Works and Crete Emergency Management Agency (EMA), we all met this morning in preparation for the upcoming snowstorm,” Chief Waterman said.
According to accuweather.com, a ‘winter storm watch’ is in effect from Tuesday evening through Thursday afternoon, with anticipated snow accumulation from 5 to 15 inches.
“We called in extra personnel for the fire station, and all department heads are coordinating to provide emergency services if necessary,” Chief Waterman said.
Compared to previous years, Crete has seen relatively mild snowfall so far, with only minor impact on travel.
“Motorists have been very careful, and we haven’t seen major incidents so far. We encourage everyone to continue being careful the next couple days,” Chief Waterman added.
