Dutchess Supervisors, Mayors Association Meets In Annual Session

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- The Dutchess County Supervisors and Mayors Association held its annual reorganizational last week.

“I enjoyed welcoming our newest supervisors and mayors last night, as well as several of our returning officials," said County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro. "Our Emergency Response Department provides critical information and services to our residents, and this session is crucial to educating and informing our chief elected officials on appropriate protocol during an emergency situation.”

Officials reviewed N.Y. State Executive Law Article 2b, which governs the municipality's Chief Elected Official's responsibilities during a disaster or emergency. They also reviewed the Intrastate Mutual Aid Program (IMAP), which authorizes participating municipalities to share resources during a local declared state of emergency.

County officials provided a synopsis of the Citizen's Preparedness Initiative, which provides participants with the tools and resources to prepare for different types of disasters. In the initiative, participants learn how to respond during a disaster and then recover to pre-disaster conditions as quicky as possible.
