Emergency Management Report
Formerly Civil Defense
The primary focus for the past year in emergency management has been the issue of Y2K. Our priority has been to insure that we were Y2K compliant with all of our emergency services so as not to experience any interruptions in our 911 system. Frequent meetings were held at the emergency management headquarters to offer updates and suggestions on the Y2K situation.
Another objective for this past year was in the area of L.E.P.C. This is a state mandated program organized to help with problems related to hazardous waste. Monthly planning meetings were held at the Ayer Police Station to assist department heads in formulating a plan in the event of a hazardous waste spill or disaster.
