On Friday March 20th, Charleston activated its Emergency Operations Center (EOC) as provided for in the town’s emergency management plan. This brings key town officials together to share information and take necessary action in response to the COVID-19 national emergency. Members are: Fire Chief Duane Moulton; Selectpersons Peter Moskovites, Larry Young, and Pat Austin; School Principal Chris Lawson; Planning Commission Chair John Kellogg; Town Clerk Teri Gray; and Asst. Clerk Colleen Kellogg.
The town has formally notified state and local emergency management of the activation. This will connect Charleston to state and federal resources in the weeks and months ahead, including FEMA supports as these become necessary.
The town’s EOC members are in regular communication with each other and will help coordinate communication with town residents using charlestonvt.org, Charleston Coffee Facebook group, Charleston Elementary website and phone network, and other channels as they are available. Residents can contact the EOC by calling or emailing the Town Office, 895-2814, or email@example.com.
For the present, town residents are urged to comply with the White House 15-day period ( https://bit.ly/3aoWcS9) to try to lessen the spread of this very potent virus. Thank you.
