⚠️ I am announcing a State of Emergency through our existing disaster declaration. We are working with state agency partners to make sure county emergency management coordinators have quick and unfettered access to state resources as they’re needed. #WinterStormQuinn https://t.co/tr7H0oDOC1— Governor Tom Wolf (@GovernorTomWolf) March 6, 2018
Wolf said extra personnel will be monitoring the situation at the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency.
Wolf said the state of emergency enables the Commonwealth to bypass the time-consuming bidding process to more quickly procure resources as needed and to access federal aid or resources to respond to county and citizen needs.
"We also cannot emphasize enough the need for the public to take these storm warnings seriously, stay tuned to local media for weather updates, and avoid any unnecessary travel," Wolf said in a statement.
