The weather guessers are calling for 3-5″ of snow in northern Ohio tonight and then predicting a significant warm-up for the next week at least. With the temperatures on the rise we will more than likely see other ice and flooding related incidents. Is your training and coordination with other agencies up to par? The incident below was from yesterday afternoon in Jerusalem Township, OH.
Personnel from the Coast Guard and first responders from Ottawa County and Jerusalem Township teamed up to assist an injured snowmobiler off the ice near Crane Creek, Ohio
