Emergency committee official

  • May. 6, 2011 8:00 a.m.

Queen Charlotte made its emergency executive committee official at the recent council meeting. At the May 2 council, meeting CAO Bill Beamish said there was no record of council having appointed an emergency coordinator or a committee as the Emergency Measures Bylaw requires. Members have been acting for several years, but the appointments had not been made official. Since May 1-7 is Emergency Preparedness Week, what better time, he said in his report to council. The Emergency Coordinator is Larry Duke and the executive committee is as follows: Mr. Duke, Faye Beaulieu, Kerry Laidlaw, Sean Muise, Diane Forrest, Gladys Noddin, Debra Uliana, Ben Greenough, Rob Knapton, Mr. Beamish and Sandra Brown. Many are emergency response professionals and have been active members of a planning group that has ensured the village has an up-to-date emergency plan. Mr. Beamish said this list does not exclude other people and he encouraged anyone with interest in emergency planning to put their name forward.
