First Responders to Address Shale Gas Risks at Carroll County Meeting


OCTOBER 21, 2012
First Responders Share Their Readiness for Shale Gas Risks
Carroll County’s Emergency Management Agency’s Director, Tom Cottis, as well as, other first responders from law enforcement, fire and EMS will participate in a question and answer session at the November 1 meeting of Carroll Concered Citizens. Topics such as traffic safety, well fire and hazardous spill response, and law enforcement oversight will be discussed.
Paul Feezel, Chair of Carroll Concerned Citizens, added, “Communities in other states that are a little ahead of us in the shale boom cycle have seen what happens when local law enforcement and public safety agencies don’t take the lead. We are hopeful that our Carroll County agencies will receive the training and resources needed to minimize the risks from the projected 2,000 wells expected to be drilled.”
The meeting will be held at the Church of Christ, 353 Moody Ave. Carrollton beginning at 7pm. It is free and open to the public.
