Davis County Sheriff’s Office Web EOC Activation
The Davis County Sheriff’s Office has advised all non-essential employees to stay at home today. Winds through Davis County have topped 100 mph in some areas. Farmington has gusts in the 90’s. The Sheriff’s Office has sustained some damage to the building and has had power outages off and on.
Ellis Bruch, our Emergency Management Coordinator has set up the Web EOC, in order to facilitate a running total of the wind-related damage throughout the county. We have a mandatory callout for off duty crews currently.
Half of our 800 MHz radio antenna, affixed on the roof of the Davis County Sheriff’s Office has been blown off. We are having great difficulty with radio traffic at this time.
We have had multiple overturned semis throughout the county. Power lines are down and causing fires. We have not officially activated our Emergency Operations Center at this time, but are evaluating as the damages continue. We will update as changes occur.
