Who Makes Up Our Health & Safety Team?

The Team is made up of many people, including but not limited to the Town Health Officer, Dean Bennett (who is appointed by the Selectmen, required by State Statute and will soon need to be Certified by the Maine CDC); the Town of Orrington Fire & Rescue Department members (who respond to medical emergencies); our Orrington Community Policing Deputies (who respond to calls for emergencies) and your Selectmen (who establish guidelines and approve preliminary budgets).


On Monday, August 27, 2007, the Selectmen voted to adopt the National Incident Management System.  This Nationally prescribed method of Incident Command shall be used at all incidents or events which may occur in our town.
