HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – As the winter precipitation moves across our area, emergency responding agencies would like to advise citizens that if they encounter a vehicle that is off the road during this weather event, please look to see if it has emergency scene tape around it.

If there is scene tape on the vehicle, it has been checked and cleared by emergency responders.

This keeps emergency workers from responding to the same vehicle multiple times and allows them to be able to answer other emergencies.

This message is from Huntsville Fire & Rescue and the Madison County Emergency Management Agency.  They urge you to please drive carefully in this winter weather and have safety supplies in your vehicle. Have a plan for inclement weather.
