New Jersey Townships hold "Shelter In Place Seminars"Submitted by The Firewall on Tue, 04/30/2013 - 09:07
When a train derailed in Paulsboro late last year spilling a toxic chemical, residents of the town as well as neighboring Greenwich Township, were ordered to “Shelter in Place,” but many local residents were left unsure of what exactly that meant and what they were supposed to do.
In an attempt to educate the two towns’ residents in case of any future instances, there will be two information sessions held this week informing the people of what procedures are expected if they are put under such orders again.
“We need to get the information out so everyone understands,” Greenwich Township Mayor George Shivery said. “God forbid we have another instance like we did with the derailment, people need to understand what we have to do.”
