Troopers Try Keeping Warm in Deep Freeze
DAYTON -- Many of us can stay warm in our homes or businesses, but there are some professions where the cold just cannot be avoided.
"We're pulling a lot of extra duties, working a lot of overtime, but hopefully we're halfway through or more," said Sgt. Jeff Kramer with the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Troopers are working overtime keeping up with all the weather we have seen.
"We've really had probably double the amount of crashes than we had last year at this time. It's a lot more work, a lot more issues, and it's day after day it seems like," said Kramer.
On dangerously cold days like what we saw on Tuesday, Sgt. Jeff Kramer still does normal tasks like watching for dangerous drivers, but the Highway Patrol's focus shifts a bit.
"Looking for people who are experiencing some kind of vehicle problems on the side of the road, so we can get them to safety or a tow truck or something and again we need to do that as fast as possible," Kramer said.
Sgt. Kramer spots a car, possibly someone stranded in the frigid temps, but no one is inside. So he leaves a notice for them to get it moved in 48 hours, or it will be towed. Sgt. Kramer dresses in layers, but his hat does not offer much protection and their hands have to be ready to grab a weapon at any moment.
"You really have to go out on the first approach to a vehicle without the gloves on or without your dominate hand glove and you don't want to be without that for very long. But we realize we are Ohio Highway Patrol (not) Florida Patrol, but if they ever have an exchange program I would probably sign up for it."
