With two winter storms approaching Central Oklahoma, EMBARK will implement winter weather service plans in Oklahoma City and Norman, keeping the safety of its employees and customers their top priority. EMBARK’s winter weather service plan allows the agency to scale service based on travel conditions, weather severity, and the availability of staff and equipment.
