ENDICOTT, N.Y. -- Emergency Services staff from the Red Cross and its local chapters have been keeping an eye on the weather reports.
They say they're prepared to open warming shelters if there are extended power outages in the region. They've also been in contact with other chapters in the Northeast division that are preparing for the snow storm.
American Red Cross Central New York Region CEO said, "If there is further damage in other cities that are not in our region, there will be a call from our emergency headquarters in New York State. There is a whole group in Albany that does statewide response. They are connected to other statewide response; and the call just goes out for what is needed."
