January 10, 2014: Water Emergency Efforts

The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office has mobilized Deputy Sheriffs and other assets to assist with the ongoing state of emergency.  More than 30 Deputy Sheriffs are on-duty responding to emergency calls and assisting with incidents as needed. 

 

Until conditions change Deputies will be working 12 hours shifts with 12 hours off-duty between shifts.  Days off have been effectively cancelled for most of the agency. 

 

Additionally, the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office Day Report Center has clients assigned to community service.  Eleven members of the program are committed to helping move water at distribution points around Kanawha County.

 

We encourage people to remain calm, and wait patiently for the water being distributed.  However, if an emergency arises, please dial 911 for assistance. 

 

Please watch for announcements from the Kanawha County Commission, Metro 911, and the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office.  We will continue to release information on water distribution efforts and locations as soon as possible.
