Emergency Services take on Snowshoe Mountain

Snowshoe, WV – On winter weekends, visitors to Snowshoe Mountain Resort swell the population of Pocahontas County to twice its permanent size. County Emergency Serivces Director Melvin Martin says he always has two things on his mind: the Greenbrier River and the potential for a dangerous situation at Snowshoe. First responders, state emergency workers and the National Guard will prepare for the latter possibility during a massive field drill June 7.
