According to a press release from Cory Stark, Director of Elbert County Emergency Management (ECEM) the Elbert County Government offices will close early today at 3pm and will open tomorrow at 10am (delayed start). The storm team will reconvene at 7:30am on Wednesday February 2nd to assess any additional closure requirements.
Meantime, ECEM reminds travelers when travel is necessary in these conditions, always keep a full tank of fuel in your vehicle. Dress in layers, and keep some rations of food in your vehicle in case you do become stranded. Above all, if you do become stranded, stay with your vehicle and if safe to do so, keep your vehicle heater running until rescued. More winter safety tips can be found at: www.readycolorado.com
