Snow Emergency Plan Remains Active

The snow emergency plan that has been implemented by Maryland State Police Berlin Barrack for Worcester County remains in effect Friday, Jan. 5.

The emergency plan was initiated on Jan. 3 at 9:30 p.m.

MSP declares snow emergencies with input from MD State Highway Administration. Once a snow emergency is declared, the law requires certain precautions.

They include:

• Prohibited parking on roads and streets designated as snow emergency routes; and
• The use of snow tires/chains (most cars now use all weather tires, so changing to “snow” tires is unnecessary);

Once an emergency is in effect, all requirements are in effect until lifted. A snow emergency plan is put into effect by the County. For updates, visit
