If and when the snow hits the city streets of Cleveland, trucks are in place to deal with whatever happens.

Michael Cox, the Director of Public Works for the city, said there are 25 trucks and drivers on hand Monday night. “So we have about 20 thousand tons of salt in our domes,” Cox said.

Cleveland spends about $3 million on salt a year.

The city posted the following information on its website urging people to prepare for snow events:

– Check your Emergency Supply Kits – do you have extra winter clothes, sufficient food and water, extra batteries, flashlights, and a battery or hand-crank radio? What about medications, toys for the kids, pet food, and copies of important information such as numbers for your local utilities.

– Gas up the car – a full tank will keep the fuel line from freezing. It’s a good idea to check your antifreeze and windshield washer fluid levels to be sure they are sufficient.

– Minimize your travel. If travel is necessary, keep an Emergency Kit in your car.
