Sorry for the late post, but we were without power for 2 hours yesterday during the high winds and
without internet for 24 hours just came back about an hour ago.
During the real high winds (approximately 1115 till 1330) the Weld County Fire Dispatcher was maxed out
with calls for most of the Fire Departments here in the northern part of Weld County. The calls all started
coming in about the same time and lasted about the same duration.
Most calls were for downed lines, power poles broken, power poles leaning over roadways, tree branches
in power lines, roofs being or blown off.
Stations dispatched were Windsor-Severance, Galeton, Nunn, Ault-Pierce, Ft. Lupton, Platte Valley,
Eaton and Briggsdale. Some of these departments had numerous truck and crews on several calls and others standing by in their respective stations.
