Dummerston rejects Vermont Yankee evacuation plan

(Host) The Dummerston Selectboard has voted to reject Vermont Yankee’s emergency evacuation plan. Chairman Paul Normandeau says his board is concerned about emergency transportation routes, and notification issues:

(Normandeau) “We also have concerns about the fact that a lot of the residents in town don’t have weather radio-alerts – even though they’re all entitled to them. Our understanding is that only about one-third of people in town have weather-alert radios, which is the primary method of notifying the citizens in the community of an emergency.”

(Host) The Selectboard in Dummerston might approve Vermont Yankee’s evacuation plan if a series of improvements are made to it.
