Tacoma, WA – December 21, 2008 – The Pierce County Emergency Operations Center will return to Level One operations at noon today. A duty officer will be on call for emergency issues.

The Pierce County 4×4 Search and Resuce volunteers transported over 100 essential hospital personnel to the regional health care facilities throughout the night. Since public transportation is up and running, the volunteers will suspend their transports at noon.

Five shelters were opened in Pierce County in anticipation of possible power outages during the storm and all have been closed.

Emergency officials are continuing to urge citizens to drive safely, carry emergency supplies in their vehicles, and to check emergency kits at home and at work.
