Wellfleet Community Forum to host disaster preparedness panel discussion

How will the Cape cope with natural or man-made disaster?

The Wellfleet Community Forum will host a disaster preparedness panel discussion on Monday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Wellfleet Public Library, 55 West Main Street, Wellfleet.

Recent disasters--both natural and man-made--have communities asking themselves how prepared they are in the face of such calamities as a hurricane, a bombing or a "major" incident at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth.

The panel will include State Senator Dan Wolf (D-Harwich), State Rep. Sarah Peake (D-Provincetown), Wellfleet Police Chief Ron Fisette, retired Wellfleet Fire Chief Dan Silverman and Cape Downwinders (an anti-nuclear power group) spokesperson Diane Turco.

Following the panel discussion, attendees will be given the opportunity to address the panel.

The Wellfleet Community Forum is a non-partisan civic organization based in Wellfleet.
