Harford County RACES Active During January 2016 Blizzard

Harford County RACES is now manning the emergency operations center throughout this weekend during the blizzard.  We will be on the 146.775 and 449.775 repeaters.

Good Evening, this is Emergency Manager Rick Ayers with a daily weather update. Harford County Executive Barry Glassman has declared a Local State of Emergency and we have requested National Guard Assets. The Blizzard Warning is now in place and we can expect 18 to 24 inches of heavy snow and potentially more. Harford County has also been placed under a High Wind Warning and we can expect wind gusts up to 65 mph. This is a very dangerous storm and we should treat it as such. I would expect widespread power outages that may last for several days. The Harford County EOC is activated at this time and the Harford County Hot-Line will be activated tonight at 7 PM and that number is (410) 838-5800.
