PRESENT: Co-Director Fire Chief Andy Head, Co-Director Chief Michael Bilodeau, Jane Hubbard of Hubbard Consulting LLC, and Administrative Assistant Diana St. Laurent.

Chief Head said that the paperwork for the EMP 50/50 grant has been sent in. SEA-3 is the business paying the 50/50 grant along with the State. Ms. Hubbard said that the final preparation for the completion of the Response Plan has been extended to September 2018. It was discussed to meet every 3-6 months with the “stake holders” listed on page 2 of the proposal. It was also determined to add the Town of Kittery, Maine to the list and also Rockingham Dispatch Center. Rockingham Dispatch will need a copy of the Response Plan when completed.
It was decided that a “kick off” meeting with the stake holders will be scheduled for the week of May 15, 2017. Chief Head said that he will speak with Paul Bogan about the meetings.
There was a discussion about doing a site review and Chief Head said that most of the interested parties have already done a site review.
