PRESENTATIONS

Mrs. Roberts called the meeting to order at 7:05 p.m. at the East Windsor Town Hall Annex. The Public Safety presentations followed:

EAST WINDSOR POLICE DEPARTMENT
Richard Sherman, Chairman Police Commission, came before the Committee to outline the standard request for two cruisers as part of the CIP.  Mr. Sherman also fielded inquiry regarding vehicles that are at the station that appear not to be used much, some of which are parts vehicles and some which are used regionally or only in state funded activities.

PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE
James Barton, Jr. spoke on behalf of the Public Safety Committee to outline the proposal for improvement of the town wide radio project.  A detailed memo outlining the requests was discussed.  The Committee would like to know more specifics about the five mobile radios – specifically what and who they are for.  Also back up information, such as quotes from Marcus Communications, are requested so the Committee can see where the figures originate.


BROAD BROOK VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT AND WAREHOUSE POINT FIRE DEPARTMENT/DISTRICT

Chief Cal Myers came before the Committee to explain the current situation with the BBFD Tanker truck and the many ailments it currently suffers, as well as the plan to go to the Board of Finance for monies to temporarily repair and the plan to downsize Broad Brook’s Fleet by requesting a Tanker Rescue vehicle.  

Subsequently Victor DeCapua of Warehouse Point Fire and Tom Strempher of Broad Brook Fire came before the Committee and presented a Joint Capital Improvement Plan for both Fire Departments.  This plan combines efforts to maintain equipment and in essence downsizes the fleet as well.  The two departments met and looked at the fire service as a unified front to best suit the Town.  The plan provides for a basic equipment plan, and it is critical to keep on schedule to avoid situations, such as BBFD’ current situation with its disabled Tanker, as well as anticipating the 2010 emission standard change.  All items were categorized, included some which will not be replaced, again as the fleets will be downsized.  The gentlemen fielded questions as to the equipment on the plan and the uses.  The life cycles of the equipment was given based on history and investigation – but of course can range somewhat with the vehicles use and future activities.

The Committee is interested in the two departments also including in the plan and firehouse requests, or major improvements to fire houses.  So that this plan is comprehensive in that it includes information on equipment and facilities.
