Northumberland County Council Thanks Storm Heroes

In City Hall

By Cecilia Nasmith/Today’s Northumberland

Northumberland County council has issued a statement of gratitude to the emergency-services personnel, public-works staff, essential-service workers and community members who came together to support the community during the significant weather event that swept through the area over the holidays.

The challenging winter storm conditions that existed from Dec. 23 to 25 brought significant travel and service interruptions, followed by an extensive storm clean-up during a busy holiday weekend. Over this period, these dedicated individuals came together to keep the community safe and provide care for those in need.

Council members – Warden Mandy Martin of Cramahe Township, Deputy Warden Brian Ostrander of the Municipality of Brighton, John Logel of Alnwick-Haldimand Township, Lucas Cleveland of the Town of Cobourg, Scott Jibb of Hamilton Township, Olena Hankivsky of the Municipality of Port Hope, and Bob Crate of the Municipality of Trent Hills – extend thanks to emergency-services personnel and essential-service workers who worked long hours over the holiday responding to an increased number of service calls to help protect the safety of residents and travelers, and to return essential-service delivery to normal operations as quickly as possible.

Thank you, too, to the residents who did their part to help the community during and after the storm – whether they helped out by inviting stranded travellers into their homes, by checking in on neighbours and loved ones to ensure they had the support they needed, volunteering their time to support increased service at the community warming shelter, or by helping to shovel or clean up debris from the storm in their neighbourhood,” the press release added.

These acts of kindness do not go unnoticed.

Quick and collaborative response to the storm across Northumberland County is a testament to the extraordinary generosity of our people and the excellence of our local emergency-service personnel and essential-service workers. Thank you to all who serve, protect and support our Northumberland County community.”
