  • Don't leave if you don't have to! Stay at home to avoid driving on roads in potentially hazardous conditions.
  • Snow Route MapThe City of Chickasha clears designated snow routes first. Crews work around the clock to ensure these designated streets are passable. Click here for more information about designated snow routes.
  • The City of Chickasha keeps an eye on bridges and will use resources to make them passable as soon as allowable.
  • Highways 62 and 81 are maintained by ODOT.
  • Bring your pets inside! If it's too cold for you to be outside, it's too cold for them.
  • Allow water to slowly drip from inside faucets and open cabinet doors under sinks to help prevent pipes from freezing.

  • Keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet from any heat source, including fireplaces, radiators and space heaters.
  • Don't use space heaters overnight.
  • Don't use an oven to heat your home.

  • Check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors monthly.
