Metro Deactivates Emergency Operations Center
March 7, 2015
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Metro’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has deactivated the Emergency Operation Center as the effects of the severe weather are believed to have passed.
“It's been a long few weeks, but Nashvillians showed their patience and resolve. For that, we are thankful,” said Fire Chief Ricky White from the Emergency Operations Center. “While the EOC is deactivating, our work doesn't end. We'll continue to coordinate with other departments and our local nonprofits to address any ongoing needs as they arise.”
Temperatures today are expected to reach the 40s which, along with more sunshine, is expected to help clear any remaining snow and ice. Some slick spots could persist, however, and drivers should still exercise caution.
Metro’s Community Hotline will remain operational 24 hours a day and can be reached at (615) 862-8750. In case of an emergency, residents should call 9-1-1.
