Carroll County first responders to discuss drilling safety

By Bob Downing Published: October 22, 2012

 Tom Cottis, director of Carroll County’s Emergency Management Agency, will participate in a question-and-answer session at the Thursday, Nov. 1, meeting of Carroll Concered Citizens.

Topics such as traffic safety, well fire and hazardous spill response, and law enforcement oversight will be discussed by Cottis and other first responders in the county.

Paul Feezel, chair of Carroll Concerned Citizens, said, "Communities in other states that are a little ahead of us in the shale boom cycle have seen what happens when local law enforcement and public safety agencies don’t take the lead. We are hopeful that our Carroll County agencies will receive the training and resources needed to minimize the risks from the projected 2,000 wells expected to be drilled."

The meeting will be held at the Church of Christ, 353 Moody Ave. Carrollton. beginning at 7 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Feezel at 330-813-8880 or
