Heavy Equipment crew at Arnold AFB helps keep roadways safe if Winter Weather Strikes

Though snow days are fairly few and far between for Tennessee, whenever inclement weather does occur during the cold, winter months, the Heavy Equipment crew that oversees roads maintenance at Arnold Air Force Base is ready to tackle it head-on and keep the streets on base safe.

Base Operations and Support team stays updated on the weather forecasts, while coordinating with the base Operations Center on current road conditions and forecasts. The intent is to stay at least 24 to 48 hours ahead of the inclement weather and prepare for when it may arrive.

A large salt supply is maintained on base for any winter events.
