OEM Officials Meet To Plan For Winter 2012

OEM officials gathered at the Township yesterday to discuss and implement new ideas ahead of Winter 2012. The meeting, called by Committeeman Meir Lichtenstien and attended by multiple emergency and non-emergency agencies, discussed how to efficiently handle the snow in the event of a major snow storm, in conjunction with the multiple agencies in the Township.

One of the topics discussed, was the idea Committeeman Lichtenstien proposed during the last Township Committee meeting, which was to allow outside vendors to utilize Township snow-removal vehicle in an effort to assist the DPW with the cleanup. (See full story here).

Also discussed, was the idea of having a designated snow plow for emergency vehicles in the event that a first responder gets stuck in the snow during a call.

LCSW and Chaveirim, who the Police Department relied on heavily during last year’s monster storm, were once again asked by the OEM to be on standby for this coming Winter.

Lichtenstien also suggested that the Township offer residents to receive alerts through SMS or the sort, to keep them updated about emergencies during storms.

“Getting hit with snow-storms such as we had last year, presents a real challenge”, says Committeeman Lichtenstien. “We must continue to marshal all resources to ensure the safest and most convenient environment for our citizens”.

In attendance at the meeting, were representatives from the following agencies and departments: The Mayor’s office, Township Manager, DPW, Inspection Department, LPD, LFD, EMS, LFA, Hatzolah, Chaveirim and LCSW. TLS.

  1. To #1. I may not be as smart as you but if TLS is at the meeting then TLS can write this article which in turns informs the rest of lakewood what went on in the meeting. I think that does some good but i could be wrong.

  2. To #1 if u don’t c how tls does good by being there maybe move to a diff town for awhile and c how life is without having an inside and reliable source on all the going on’s! Why are u even on the scoop?? Is it because u want to know info and the latest updates on the town? Well then how do you expect the scoop to be able to do that with out being present at such meetings?? … I’m going to b don lekaf zechus that rlly you do appreciate the scoop and u just had a hard day today

  3. You are a fool. There is a period before “TLS”, not a comma! That is the byline of the article. Go to any article on this site that is not taken from another website, and you will see the letters TLS ending off the article. Sheesh!!

  4. excuse me but the TLC lets all residents pro and con of an issue voice there own opinion. As a resident of lakewood this is the only way to have your voice heard. No one in this town listens to othere so I commend the TLC for doing a super job.

  5. I find out more information from TLS then I do from my own supervisor. I’m so greatful that TLS attends these meetings and other related functions.
