Montgomery County officials talk about call volumes in extreme weather conditions

GAITHERSBURG, Md. – Montgomery County officials say they've seen about a hundred more calls than usual due to weather conditions.

Officials explain how the county manages the high call volume in extreme weather. Your operators will be trained to grade each incoming call on a scale from zero to six. Zero is the highest priority and six are the least serious. Most calls received on Wednesday were calls due to vehicle collisions or stuck cars on the streets. The head of Montgomery County Fire and Rescue explains what it means when the county is blue.

"Based on a call volume, the system allows the jurisdiction to implement a blue alert, which is something we implemented a little after 8 this morning, in which case weather conditions dictate that we take patience to the next level will bring hospital, "said Chief Scott Goldstein, Montgomery County Fire & Rescue.
