EMSA Answers Slippery Sidewalk Calls

The winter weather means slippery roadways, but sidewalks are also a danger. EMSA has been busy responding to quite a few more traffic collision calls than normal since the winter weather moved into the area.

Kelli Bruer with EMSA says they’ve also responded to people slipping and falling inside and outside. She says be careful when walking on untreated walkways, wear good shoes, and dry shoes off once you get back inside.

She says it’s been a while since we’ve seen any real snow accumulation in the Tulsa area, so people need to be extra cautious on roads and sidewalks.
