Emergency Management Report -- 2012
June Garneau, our consultant, and I would like to thank the participants – Heidi Lawton, NH State Department of Safety, Jay Henry, Sean Cowland, Diane Falcey, Joan Aubrey, and Jerry Dougherty IV .
We were very lucky that the Town had no damage from Hurricane Sandy
The H has been painted on the pavement at the Town Garage for an Emergency Helicopter Landing Zone. We hope that we don’t have to use it, but want to make sure the Town has an area to land if it becomes necessary.
The Town Office has been wired for an Emergency Generator. This will be available so the Town may still function when or if the need arises.
In 2003 the Town implemented the Federal Emergency 911 system. Part of the requirement is to make sure your home is numbered with reflective material a minimum of 3 inches in height so that emergency services can locate you. Many of the residences are not following this part of the requirement. Please, number your homes to assure that you can have the fastest response time available should it be needed. We have had numerous times that the address for an emergency call cannot be found because there are no visible numbers. Please help us by posting them in a conspicuous place, either on your home, or on a post or tree at the end of your driveway.
