High CO Levels

March 15, 2008 - Southborough Firefighters responded to a still alarm for a CO detector going off at 155 Northboro Road earlier today.  Upon arrival they found elevated levels of CO in the building.  Southborough Fire then put out a box alarm bringing a Westborough Ambulance and Northborough's Engine 2, ladder truck and ambulance to the scene while Hopkinton Fire covered the main Southborough station. Two people were transported to a local hospital.  Seven people were checked on site for CO poisoning.  Although some of the workers had elevated levels they were not at dangerous levels and they refused further treatment. The building was vented and the cause is still under investigation. (photo to right insert courtesy of Northborough Fire Photographer Roger Conant)

ALGONQUIN ATHLETIC BOOSTERS’ CLUB HOSTS FOURTH ANNUAL FACULTY-STUDENT BASKETBALL GAME

The Algonquin Athletic Boosters’ Club will host the Fourth Annual Faculty-Student Basketball Game on March 27, 2008. The game, which is the Boosters’ major fundraiser, will take place in the Algonquin Gym at 6:30 PM. All proceeds from the event help support the Algonquin Athletic Programs.

“The Athletic Department at Algonquin greatly appreciates the support it receives from the Booster Club, not only in terms of the funds raised, but also the ‘spirit’ within the community” states Fran Whitten, the Algonquin Athletic Director. “The Booster Club enables coaches to pursue professional development opportunities, supplements the athletics’ budget by purchasing training equipment for the weight room and always serves as a wonderful fan base at athletic contests” continued Whitten.

Boys and Girls Varsity players will be coached by Whitten and will play against faculty members representing various skill levels and academic disciplines. “I feel it is important to participate as it gives me an opportunity to showcase my mad skills”, joked English teacher and Boys’ Varsity Soccer coach, John Frederick. “Although I am a teacher and a coach, I still have the ability to dominate both the male and female student athletes at ARHS in any sport, never mind a sport that I dominated when I was a student here” quipped Frederick. Faculty player and Lower School Assistant Principal Paul DiDomenico plays for a different reason. “Students love to see teachers step out of the normal routine in order to have fun. In this case, no only do we have fun, but we promote Tomahawk pride and benefit the Boosters, an organization that works tirelessly on behalf of our students. It is a pleasure working at a school that has such an active spirit and giving community.”

The night is filled with other special events. Three Algonquin teams, the 2007 Boys’ Baseball Team and the 2007 Boys’ Lacrosse Team will be honored at half-time for their league and post-season performances as well as the 2007 District League Champion Girls’ Spring Track Team. The Gymnastics’ Team will perform routines and wonderful gift baskets donated by the various athletic teams will be raffled off. A 50/50 Raffle for a cash prize will round out the evening’s fundraising efforts.

“We hope to exceed last year’s total of $4,800” says Booster President, Alice Edman. “It’s a fun night for everyone—the teachers really “get into it” with faculty teachers cheering, trash talking and playing as if they were still students themselves. The students enjoy playing against their teachers and the crowd cheers for both teams. We want to thank additional sponsors such as Polar Beverages, TeamWorks and the new Pantry Gourmet for their generous support.”

Tickets are $2.00 for students with a student ID and $5 for adults. ARHS students who attend are eligible to enter a free drawing for some great prizes.

“I look forward to the competition, although, I doubt it will be much of one,” says the ever competitive Frederick. Wanting to get the last word, Whitten replied, “I am looking forward to coaching the students’ team and shutting down the so called dominant Mr. Frederick!”

All are welcome to come to the game, root for the students or the staff and support a worthwhile cause.

Vernal Pool Presentation

March 13, 2008 - above photo. Audience members discuss the implications of vernal pool identification. Photo to left, one of five certified vernal pools in Southborough.  Last night the Southborough Open Space Committee gave a presentation on how to go about identifying vernal pools.  The State of Massachusetts  through the Natural Heritage program certifies the pools after certain criteria are met.  For example the type of frogs, bugs, turtles and salamanders that use the vernal pool and upland. For more information on vernal pool identification you may contact a member of the Southborough Open Space Committee.  More information can be located on the state website for vernal pool identification click here.

Table top Exercise

March 12, 2008 - Photo - a tabletop exercise these "beanie pets and paper became "live" pets in a hands on role playing exercise held at the Southborough Fire Station yesterday. Southborough Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) met and went over the various plans that are incorporated into the larger Southborough Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) plan. The town’s plan has sections for Senior Citizens, schools, Pets and livestock, medical and a number of other problem specific plans. It also includes various scenarios such as terrorism, storms, pandemic flu,  electrical outages, hazardous incidents and more.

All cities and towns need to have a plan in place. The Southborough CEMP has been reviewed and certified from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). The plan is a multi tasked all hazards response plan that includes board adaptable plans for various disasters and/or emergencies that could occur in or around the Town of Southborough. It can be used for small scale disasters or merged into a larger regional, statewide or Federal disaster. It involves the various management skills and communication parameters of the NIMS and Incident Command systems. Members of the LEPC prepare by learning the organization, information, training and exercises involving the various disasters and plans that are involved in the CEMP.

The training portion of yesterday’s LEPC meeting consisted of a tabletop exercise with the Southborough Animal Disaster Preparedness Committee (SADP) and their plan that was submitted and accepted in December 2006. Conducted by Linda Hubley and Terry Holland co-chairs of the SADP it was a role playing, hands on activity. The SADP drew up a scenario that involved a foot plus snowstorm followed two days later by an eight inch rainstorm that flooded parts of town. Many citizens from flood prone neighborhoods had basement water that surrounded or drowned their heating systems and electrical supply thus virtually shutting down their homes. The residents then had to evacuate to either family, friends or a hotel. Their pets would either have to be taken with them or sent to a pet shelter if they went to a people shelter. Homes on Wood Street were surrounded by the Sudbury River, cutting that neighborhood off all together with Police and fire fighters conducting evacuations and closing the neighborhood off to onlookers and residents.

LEPC members then picked up individual paperwork that showed their “role” in the disaster. The paper work gave the member the number and type of animals they had, whether or not they had a pet disaster emergency kit available, if they had the proper paperwork for their pets (i.e. health certificates, proof of rabies vaccine) and if they had brought pet food to the shelter. Other paperwork for the role playing involved volunteers for the pet shelter, volunteers for pet search and rescue and if the home owner was at home at the time of evacuation or if they returned at a later time. One “resident” of Wood Street was directed to “argue” with public safety officials and rescue personnel to return to their neighborhood to stay there and look for his two outside cats and one indoor dog.

After picking out their role play  of about 16 papers that had a variety of “beanie pets” such as reptiles, dogs, cats, hamsters, bunnies and even a mini horse they were then directed to the shelter. The shelter was set up in a corner of the meeting hall according to the inflow/outflow floor plan established by the SADP plan. “Pets” that had no documentation of the proper paperwork were sent to a quarantine aisle away from the others. Cats were put in cages if they didn’t come with a cage or came in a box. Dogs were put in cages or crates in another area of the shelter away from the cats and quarantined pets. The horse was directed to one of the several designated barns in town that already house horses and/or livestock. As the LEPC members funneled by the shelter take in table they simulated filling in the various paperwork.

The training exercise ended with a “hotwash” or what worked and what didn’t work on the tabletop exercise. As the SADP had never held one before it was good for review. We learned that we probably should stream line some of the paper work and even put it out to the public ahead of time by various town websites and  the www.southboroughanimaldisasterpreparendess.org  website. It was suggested that besides the static displays that are held at the Southborough Library, the Southborough transfer station and Heritage Day Event to include possibly addressing the need for Pet preparedness with handouts and paperwork as people pick up dog licenses and have a table display and handout at the annual rabies clinic.

Another problem area in the exercise was a bit of confusion for the “Wood Street Residents”. This turned into a discussion that there most likely will be similar confusion in a disaster and to try to ease and mitigate the confusion by having greeters at the shelter that would assist worried owners of pets. All in all there were many comments from the participants that they didn’t realize what is needed at a shelter or that they would have to bring copies of health certificates and proof of rabies vaccine to drop their pet off. They didn’t know that the town’s pet shelter is really just a stepping stone or temporary shelter and that they should make plans ahead of time for their pets in an emergency. Another big surprise was when they were to pick up their pets they needed a photo ID of their pet and it would be even better if the photo included a family member. This is to protect you and your pet so the pet doesn’t leave with the wrong owner or someone that comes to the shelter to steal your pet.

If you would like to help the Town of Southborough in an emergency or disaster you must be trained.  There are many opportunities for training.  Check out the following links for more information on the Town of Southborough Emergency Management (click the Emergency link on left).  At this same page you can learn about the upcoming Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and or contact the Southborough Board of Health for the Southborough Medical Response Corps program or the Southborough Animal Disaster Preparedness committee.
