County Not Screwing Around Anymore

Spokane County is calling in the big guns. The Washington Air National Guard’s 141st Refueling Wing (ARW) has been called upon to augment state and local jurisdictions with snow removal. The 141st ARW is providing ten citizen airmen to operate two industrial snow-blowers, one truck with a plow and one front-loader. Their mission will be seven-days in duration unless they are called off sooner. Go Guard!

In the meantime, Spokane County road crews are continuing to clear primary arterials and emergency routes.
