THE WEEKLY BRIEFING – THE DOT DOT

PennDOT has just released a new “yellow dot program.” This program is free of charge. If an accident should occur, the yellow dot (which is placed in your rear windshield) notifies emergency teams that your important health information is located in your glove box.

15-YEAR-OLD TRAINS EMERGENCY COMMS!

In Pennsylvania, we have a seven-county regional task force that deals with all the homeland security funding to enhance our response. Funding kits have been developed to assist the amateur radio groups throughout the seven counties in order to do their job of helping us in emergency management.

“Kelsey Seymour has been involved in the entire equipment process. He provided advice and guidance on what to purchase, designed the portable kits, and organized the labor to assemble the [seven] kits.” says Tioga County’s Emergency Management Coordinator, Dennis Colegrove.

A WEEKEND TRIP TO THE SUGAR SHACKS!

This weekend is the 10th Annual Maple Weekend for both Tioga and Potter Counties. This “traveling festival” is a tribute to all things maple. Maple producers all over Tioga and Potter counties will be demonstrating tree tapping, sugar boiling, and more! You can pick up a map for this sweet adventure at the Wellsboro area Chamber of Commerce. This map provides a great layout for a maple-infused road-trip! On this adventure you can enjoy pancake stops, maple candy, maple butter, maple nuts, maple cotton-candy and more! But have you ever wondered what goes into making all these amazing treats?
