TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett got a front seat look at Tulsa streets Saturday - the front seat of a Tulsa fire engine, that is.

Bartlett took to the streets to review road conditions and see what his crews are up against in the blizzard clean up. Tulsa fire crews have been helping smash down the snow by driving up and down city streets when they are not responding to emergency calls.

On Saturday, Bartlett and crews got a few car owners back on the road as well.

"This is exactly what all 42 trucks and their crews have been doing for three days - and accomplishing a lot," Bartlett said.

"It takes a lot of effort, but over a several day period of time it really has helped our city become a lot more accessible, mobile and able to get on with their lives.
