Ohio Governor John Kasich issued a statewide Energy Emergency Declaration today to expedite shipments of the commonly used home-heating fuels. In addition, Kasich is asking the federal government to take steps to speed up the shipments of propane and heating oil coming into Ohio from out of state.
The Governor is also asking Ohio counties to keep an eye out for residents whose supplies may be getting low.
“I urge folks to look out for one another right now. Check in on your neighbors, especially seniors or families with young kids, and call your local Red Cross or EMA if there’s anyone who needs help. We’ll get through this as we always do, by working together,” said Kasich.
