Consider coming down to lower elevations

·1 min read

Jan. 14—If you live at a high elevation and have a medical condition that may require ambulance response, consider coming down to a lower elevation prior to Saturday evening.

Haywood County Emergency Services issued this advisory late Friday as part of its ongoing public communication about snow storm preparations.

"Now is the time to come down off those higher elevations and be in the place where an ambulance can get to you," said Allison Richmond, Haywood Emergency Services spokesperson. "If you have medical needs, think about coming down and finding a place to stay with a loved one or a friend so you can be in a safe position for us to come get you if need be."
