From County Emergency Manager Jeff Luckey:
Due to the recent winter storm and significant snowfall that affected Erie County resources were requested from our County by Erie County Deputy Fire Commissioner through Office of Fire Prevention and Control (OFPC). Allegany County deployed fire departments to assist multiple departments in Erie County from November 19 – 21. This is done through our contiguous counties statewide mutual aid plan for Emergency Management and through our contiguous counties mutual aid for Fire departments. We had eight departments deploy to six different areas of Erie County along with a County Deputy Coordinator with them. They covered calls in those towns and communities. This coverage allowed fellow Brothers and Sisters to return to their homes for rest and to their families after responding for 35-40 hours straight. Six Departments were deployed for 24 hours and two departments were deployed for almost 48 hours. I, as Emergency Manager, went as mutual aid for the EOC in Erie County to relieve my counter parts who had been there for twenty-four plus hours.
Assistant District Attorney Ian Jones reports 23 new felony cases were opened in November, compared to 28 the prior month. The Office worked on 47 misdemeanor cases and 230 Violation cases in November. So far this year, there have been 214 felony cases, 498 misdemeanor cases and 1,392 Violation cases
From Gilbert Green, Director of Weights and Measures:
November activities: I checked scales at 3 large grocery stores (Wellsville, Cuba) and 2 small stores (Canaseraga, Black Creek). I finished the last hardware scales (Belmont, Wellsville). I checked scales at several small businesses (Caneadea, Black Creek). I scheduled a vehicle scale in Belfast. I checked a bulk tank and coordinated with DFA technician. The rest of the year will be filled with paperwork for yearly reports. I traveled approximately 800 miles in the month.
