This Center, which can maintain radio contact with Shelburne Falls Emergency Dispatch as well as the Wendell Fire and Police Departments, was staffed and operational during the first days of the power outage. Fire Chief Everett Ricketts was on duty full time, coordinating communication and town emergency servies. Many town residents without water came to the EOC where they could fill water containers.
