McCready thanks community

Pulaski County was spared a major storm and flooding with the change of direction of Hurricane Florence. While we did not make public the projected storm totals, two of those storm models forecast particularly difficult conditions for Pulaski County. One model said we would get 12 to 15 inches of rain and 50 miles per hour winds. The other model forecast in excess of 20 inches of rainfall hitting the county. Either scenario would have caused substantial and devastating effects to our county.

The Pulaski County Board of Supervisors would like to thank all of our citizens for helping to prepare. Specifically, we would like to thank Pulaski County’s Emergency Services Director Josh Tolbert, Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, all county fire departments, Pulaski County schools, Pulaski County social services, REMSI, Pulaski County Animal Shelter, the town of Pulaski police and fire departments, the town of Pulaski engineer and public works, the Agency on Aging, the Virginia Department of Transportation, Appalachian Power, the Red Cross and any other groups that prepared for this potential disaster.

Most of all we would like to thank our citizens for following the calls to prepare for the storm and then stay home so that the roads and utilities could be repaired and restored. Our citizens showed the Pulaski County spirit by looking after our neighbors and our community. Our citizens are proud of our Pulaski County home and it showed.

Andy McCready- Chairman of the Pulaski County Board of Supervisors
