Predicted snowfall and freezing temperatures prompted the Greene County Office of Emergency Management to open a shelter at 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad headquarters, 602 W. Church St., for those seeking warmth.

The rescue squad building has an emergency generator in the event there is a power outage, said Bill Brown, emergency management director.

For information, call the county Emergency Management office at 798-1729.

County Emergency Management also fully activated its Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 6 p.m.

Along with members of the Emergency Management office, representatives of other agencies will also be present, Brown said.

Agencies who will have representatives at the EOC will include the Greene County Sheriff’s Department, Greeneville Police Department, Greene County Highway Department, Greene County-Greeneville EMS, the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad and Greeneville Light & Power System.
There will be a representative from every agency.

“If something does go wrong, then we can coordinate (the response),” Brown said.

Pet owners are reminded to provide warm, insulated shelter with clean, dry bedding, such as cedar chips for their animals.

Here are some other storm tips provided by the Greeneville Fire Department:

• Monitor local news reports for updates on weather forecasts and storm impacts.
• Have a well-stocked emergency supply kit that includes flashlights, a portable radio, extra batteries, a first-aid kit, bottled water, non-perishable food and a manual can opener.
