Quispamsis Council Requests Update On State Of Emergency

Quispamsis council making sure they are prepared for the worst...the town making a request to be updated on the state of emergency and local state of emergency legislation. 

Regional Emergency Management Coordinator for Saint John and Sussex Brent Whalen tells CHSJ News, it all starts at the municipal level.

"If an emergency occurs...multiple police departments, multiple fire departments from adjacent municipalities have to come in to assist a single municipality. It becomes overwhelming, and so an escalation in support is going to be required," he says.
