Fairhaven Plans For Hurricane Season
Fairhaven is planning for the worst this hurricane season.
Town department heads reviewed the town's Hurricane Preparedness Plan with the Board of Selectmen Monday night. Some revisions were made to last year's plan, but the majority went unchanged.
The discussion was more of an opportunity for town officials to remind residents about safety.
Fire Chief Tim Francis says residents, especially those living on West Island or Sconticut Neck, should be prepared...
Francis also urges these residents to get their hurricane passes now, so they don't have to rush when a storm is on the way.
In the event of a hurricane, shelters will be established at Wood School and Hastings Middle School. Residents will need passes to get back to their homes once roads are deemed safe for travel.
Some changes that were made to the town's plan were new monitors for the emergency command center and the fire department's new mobile generator. The generator was funded by a federal grant and can provide any building with full power.
