SALISBURY, Md.- Private snow plow drivers are busy preparing for this weekend's snow storm. One local company, D.M. Taylor, Inc. said it has 60 tons of salt ready and 100 tons on standby for this weekend.

Jason Schwartz, who is an assistant manager at the company, said it has been preparing for this upcoming storm for the past week. Schwartz said making sure all the equipment is in good working order is one of their top priority checks.

"We go through all the equipment and make sure everything is running; we check for any unforeseen factors and make sure everything is running," Schwartz said. 

Schwartz said his company's primary clients are businesses, where they do salt treatments and clear their parking lots of snow. Schwartz said for most major snow events he and his staff work over 100 hours within a matter of a few days. He said he heavily relies on a dependable staff to get the jobs done.

During the winter season Schwartz said he has about six regular employees working, but can increase his staff by 25 to 30 workers when a snowstorm hits. 

"It takes dependable people to do this job. Not everybody will wake up to a phone call at 3 a.m. saying hey, lets go clear a parking lot." Schwartz said.

Schwartz said all of his snow plow trucks, salt trucks and other equipment are ready to go for this weekend's storm. He said when the bulk of the storm hits, his company's primary focus will be clearing business lots first, then residential areas.
