Section 4: District Reporting

Anchor: #i999426

Reports from Each Maintenance Section

Reporting at the district level is normally a procedure that is outlined in the district’s Snow and Ice Control Plan. See Chapter 1, Section 2, “District Snow and Ice Control Plan.” The information needs of each district should be met by their reporting requirements. A typical district level report includes detailed information from each maintenance section that can be used to answer public complaints and requests for information during a snow and ice storm. This information is also used by the district maintenance office to coordinate the movement of personnel and equipment to areas hardest hit by the storm.
