Jones County EOC encourages to "stay in, stay safe"

Harsh winter weather conditions are causing traffic accidents across the Pine Belt. The Jones County Emergency Operations Center encourages all to stay inside during these dangerous conditions.

Director of the Jones County Emergency Operations Center, Marda Tullos, talks about what you should do right now to keep safe.

"Take heed and prepare," Tullos said.

"Go to the grocery store and get extra food, check on the elderly, check on your family members, make sure you have updated phone numbers and your neighbors. Make sure that if someone doesn't have heat, advise them to stay with you for a night or a couple of days."

Tullos adds that if roads are iced over, avoid driving in those treacherous conditions.
