Fire departments gear up for winter weather

SCOTT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - One Missouri fire department says they are going to be flooded with calls for the next two days.

Scott County Rural Volunteer Fire Department has stocked up all departments with food, water and clothes in preparation for the upcoming snow.

Scott County Rural Fire Chief Jeremy Perrien says they have manned all stations with fire fighters starting at 3 p.m. on Sunday and expect to be there through Tuesday.

Perrien urges people not to get out and travel on the roads unless absolutely necessary.

The chief says some vehicles might get stuck on the roads which impacts the fire departments response time.
