The Village recently put a call out to the community for volunteers to bolster their ranks during an emergency. To assist the Westport Emergency Operations Centre, support is needed in three areas – note taking (scribe), canvassing residences and setting up reception centres. Several people responded to the call, including all members of Council. Training was provided in the morning of October 28 by Mayor Robin Jones, Councillor Barry Card and Alison Tutak, Director of Social Services for the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville. A full scenario exercise involving all of the students occurred in the afternoon, which gave the students an opportunity to apply what they had learned. Many thanks from all members of Council to those who stepped up. Your commitment will provide much needed support during an emergency.
