Emergency Shelter Gets Test Run


Hamilton’s emergency shelter is ready to go, if the occasion arises due to an extended power outage or other disaster in town.

The Emergency Management Shelter Team did a drill on Tuesday night, Nov. 17, at the Council on Aging building on Bay Road, in front of the Public Safety Building, so it will be prepared to open when needed.

There were 31 high school students that participated as shelter residents and were given different roles to play.

“It was a successful drill,” said Fire Chief Phil Stevens, who also serves at the town’s emergency management director. “Team members met afterwards to go over the drill and discuss ways to improve the process.”

The team meets every other month on the third Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
