Grady County burn ban to remain in effect despite rain

GRADY COUNTY — While the burn ban has expired for Grady County, Governor Mary Fallin's statewide burn ban is still in effect, Dale Thompson, Grady County Emergency Management Director said. He added that the recent rainfall has not been significant enough to affect the drought.

The safe room project is still underway. A disaster number was assigned to Grady County and the environmental part of the process has been finished. Thompson said this is a positive step towards the project because the environmental and historical segments of the process can potentially be major issues. Thompson said that he hopes the safe rooms can begin to be built by Spring.

Some electrical fires were reported as well as a few medical calls, but otherwise it has been a quiet week, Thompson said.
