“We succeeded together last week.”
“Last week we all had a very successful snow battle. This morning we had a meeting at AFAD under the coordination of the Governor of Istanbul. We were the Metropolitan Municipality of Istanbul, 39. We talked to local governments and representatives of all agencies and organizations about what to do about snowfall this weekend. Of course, both us and other agencies made all the preparations during the day now. Our team is all ready and on the scene, because as of tomorrow morning, according to our friends, snowfall will begin to appear in Istanbul around 08:00 in the early morning. It lasts all day. It stops occasionally and it snows. We all know that we are in a city where it is not easy to deal with both traffic and snow on Friday. Then, by the decision of the Governor’s Office, the school was closed tomorrow. Partial administrative authority was also granted. The snowfall that started tomorrow will continue to be heavy on Saturday. It will snow again on Sunday. I would like to spend this weekend without any problems. I would like to experience the blessings and beauty of snow and precipitation with my fellow citizens of Istanbul.
“Be careful and it will make your job easier.”

Therefore, spending another day most carefully on another business day will really make your job easier. In this regard, we support you for all vehicles, all employees, all public and corporate organizations, and 39 local governments to perform better duties, especially for tomorrow. I need it seriously. Please do not drive or go out unless necessary. Also, please make a business trip by public transport. And we wish you a wonderful Friday.
“Everything is ready”
We are in the field with over 2000 equipment and over 9000 employees. All our equipment, all salting equipment, everything is ready. And we give you a healthy weekend. AKOM will continue to inform you if there is potential for progress and measures are being taken. At AKOM, all public institutions and organizations are still functioning. Again, there are accommodations where homeless citizens can stay, even though they live on the streets, if necessary. Again, stray animals are under our supervision. Again, we will continue to distribute food in case traffic is needed. At a meeting held by our Governor’s Office this morning, North Marmala highway authorities, especially highways, ICAs, third bridge roads, and airports in areas outside our jurisdiction, introduced their own preparations. And explained. Adjustments in the best prepared way for the process. We are completely ready. But again, we ask the people of Istanbul to support us at the highest level. Again, I hope our children and young people will have a good time and read a lot of books. “
