Town BBLEPC Seeking New Members

HELP!

 The Big Bend Local Emergency Planning Committee (BBLEPC) needs your help NOW!

 We are your local response team that responds to emergency situations that arise yearly in the Town of Big Bend.  This volunteer organization responds to large events such as strong winds or tornado storms in the summer, overwhelming winter storms and major fires.  Our group was formed in 2006 because of the Federal Mandate that all government municipalities, including Towns, have a local emergency plan and group.  There have been several events where we have been called out to remove debris from roads and direct traffic.

 We have experienced the loss of a few members over the past few months, primarily because of either moving or for personal reasons as our lives change with time.

 WE NEED NEW MEMBERS – NOW!

 If interested in learning more about this group, contact Town Board Supervisor Bob DeVoe at 715-868-5544 or 715-226-0428 or BBLEPC Chairman Bob Davis at 715-868-1625 or 715-828-2175.
