EXETER â€“ When a major weather event is on the way, residents receive constant advisories via computer, TV and radio, but what about the animals housed at the townâ€™s shelter on South County Trail?
Whoâ€™s looking out for their safety?
As it happens, in another example of inter-departmental teamwork, Stefan Coutoulakis and Steve Mattscheck â€“ directors, respectively, of emergency management and public works/the shelter â€“ have put their heads together over this very topic. They have arrived at a plan adapted from one used in coastal Louisiana.
