St. Peters Emergency Operations Team is Operational; Reminds Residents to Sign Up for Nixle Emergency Messages
February 20, 2013
In wake of the approaching snow, sleet and ice storm, the City of St. Peters’ Emergency Management Team
is managing the City’s response, coordinating with other regional emergency management agencies and tracking the storm.
All crews and trucks are ready to go to keep the City’s roadways as safe as possible. When the storm hits, residents are asked to stay off the City’s roadways if possible for their safety and to make clearing operations more effective. Residents are also asked to move parked cars and other obstructions from the street to allow snowplows to get through.
The City of St. Peters urges residents who have Internet access or cell phones able to receive text messages to sign up for Nixle, an emergency notification service the City uses to send out urgent messages to its residents. A link to sign up for this free service is available on the home page of the City’s website, www.stpetersmo.net. Click on the green Emergency Notifications Sign Up
