01/26/10 50 W, 1 I - + 11 - 6 Washing Away Snow

With wintry weather possible this weekend, here's a fitting photo of veteran Wake County 'medic Fred Loy washing away snow at old EMS Station 1. The undated photo, which appeared in the paper, is passed along by his son Travis. Who's who also pictured? Click to enlarge:

Semi-related, have any departments had their driveway pads “salt brined” before snows? Just curious if there’s been any luck with that in the public safety sector. I know DOT (or the city) handles plowing the access to the station most times, but I’m wondering if prevention is possible?

Yes, Cary has in the past & will if needed (the salt mix or the new salt brine)?, and provides snow/ice melt for the sidewalks. We do the clean-up after the fact, if needed.
