- 49 truck-mounted snow plows (Of the 67 trucks with spreaders, 49 have plows.)
- 7 4x4 pick-up trucks equipped with snow plows
- 3 motor graders for use as plows
- 170 employees (including drivers and support staff)
- Approximately 11,500 tons of salt on hand

In a news release, Tulsa says spreading and plowing routes are prioritized based on traffic counts.
