As Chairman of the Board of Selectmen and on behalf of the Board, I am declaring a state of emergency in the Town of Wareham commencing at noon, Friday, February 8, 2013 until 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, February 10, 2013.
I am urging that all Wareham Residents curtail all unnecessary travel, and to avoid all downed lines during the declaration period. There is an emergency parking ban in place and will be enforced to the fullest extent the law allows.
We will be cooperating with state and federal officials to protect life and property, and to coordinate any benefits that may become available as a result of local, state, and federal emergency declarations.
I reiterate that your safety is our primary concern during this emergency period and that we stand ready to help you to the best of our ability.
In an emergency, please call the Police Department at (508) 295-1212. All other calls, please call our Municipal Maintenance Department at (508) 295-5300.
Stephen M. Holmes, Chairman
Wareham Board of Selectmen
