Annual Snow and Ice Training Scheduled November 8-9

City of Tacoma announcement.

The City of Tacoma’s Street Operations Division is holding its annual snow and ice training on Monday, November 8, and Tuesday, November 9, between 7:30 AM to 4 PM each day. During this time frame, emergency snow vehicles will be dispatched for crews to experience operating these vehicles along snow routes and around traffic.

During a snowstorm event, City crews plow and de-ice streets on a priority level, starting with primary arterial streets and then followed by secondary and auxiliary routes. The time required to clear these routes depends on the intensity of a particular snowstorm and how much snow or ice accumulates.
