City, county ready to handle new year problems

Guest author

As the community and the nation enters the year 2000, it is uncertain what problems, if any, might be encountered.

As a precaution, and to enable local government to offer uninterrupted emergency services in the event that problems do occur, several locations in Moffat County will be staffed and available for public assistance.

On New Year’s Eve and into New Year’s Day, emergency operations centers will be open at Craig City Hall and Dinosaur Elementary School in Dinosaur. Centers will be also open in Maybell and Hamilton, if needed.

In the event that problems occur and assistance cannot be obtained by telephone, the public is advised to go to the following locations for assistance:

Craig: For general, non-emergency assistance, members of the Moffat County Sheriff’s Department Victim Advocate Unit will be at Sunset Meadows, 633 Ledford St.

Craig: For emergency assistance go to City Hall, 300 W. Fourth St.

Craig: The Memorial Hospital emergency room located at 785 Russell St. will remain open at all times.

Hamilton: For emergency assistance, go to the Hamilton Community Building located on Colorado Highway 13 next to the Hamilton Post Office.

Maybell: For emergency assistance, go to the Maybell Community Building located near the north end of the Maybell Park off U.S. Highway 40.

Dinosaur: For emergency assistance, go to Dinosaur Elementary School, 401 Fourth St. (Submitted by Moffat County Emergency Manager Clyde Anderson.)
