Chapleau Council Continues Work on Power Outage Emergency Response Plan

The Township of Chapleau's continuing to work on an emergency plan focusing on power outages.

Chapleau Town Council launched an assessment of the Township's emergency plan after concerns were raised about the response to a roughly 24-hour outage in May, and Mayor Michael Levesque says the Township's still "kind of in the middle of finalizing it".

Levesque explains the hope is to set up a plan that would be able to cover every season, with specifics for certain times of year.

The mayor notes there will also need to be a provision for a "warming station" during the winter - the Town Hall's currently being considered, though the Township would need to purchase a generator to make that possible.
