COAST GUARD FLIES TO WARN MARINERS OF IMMINENT STORM

BOSTON — The Coast Guard is urging mariners and the coastal community to take precautions in preparation for Winter Storm Juno, expected to impact the Northeast late Monday through Wednesday
The Coast Guard is flying storm tracks today to warn mariners of the impending blizzard. Air Station Cape Cod is using HC-144a Ocean Sentry airplanes to circumvent the storm while radioing information to mariners below. The Coast Guard will continuously update conditions and issue marine broadcast warnings.
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for all of Rhode Island and Eastern Massachusetts, including the Cape and Islands. 
"I was living here in Massachusetts in 1978 when a storm shut down the city for a week, this has all the ingredients to be a historical event," said Rear Adm. Linda Fagan, commander of the 1st Coast Guard District in Boston. "I've ensured our crews are ready, and prepared for the worst."
Sustained winds will likely be 20 to 40 mph in a large area with gusts up to 55 mph. Even higher winds are expected in eastern Massachusetts, including Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard where gusts of 70+ mph are possible. Snow accumulation is estimated at 20-30 inches. 
Hurricane force wind warnings are in effect for portions of the nearshore waters around Cape Cod and the nearby islands. Seas could exceed 25 feet and winds could gust over 80 mph over water, making this an extremely dangerous storm for mariners.

OFFICE OF THE FIRE CHIEF
In addition to the general response to fire and EMS calls, conducting apparatus
checks, daily cleaning, routine repairs and maintenance to the fleet and of the
quarters, the following occurred:
 Monday’s fire at the Thorndike proved yet again, the value of sprinkler systems. While our personnel are very motivated and well trained, no FD can have a nozzle in the right place as quick as a sprinkler system. In this case without a fully functioning sprinkler system the fire in the void between floors would have quickly spread to a very large area and multiple floors, the results of which would likely have been tragic. While this is a “W” in the win column, we share this victory with the Council, the Code Office and the people of the City who help ensure there is an inspection program and adopted codes that ensure these safety measures are in place. We’re also fortunate that the current owner has been working to bring upgrades to the building. Monday afternoon the working fire alarm and sprinkler systems together ensured there were no injuries and minimized damage.
 On Tuesday morning I worked with the Fire Marshal’s Office investigator on the origin and cause determination of the Thorndike Fire. We came to the same
conclusion our FD investigation revealed Monday night, that the fire was
accidental in nature, caused by “hot work” being performed on the adjacent
roof.
 Tuesday afternoon I attended the Maine Fire Sprinkler Coalition meeting. This
newly formed group will be endeavoring to educate Mainer’s about the benefits
of sprinklers as a whole, and in particular Home Fire Sprinklers.
 Wednesday evening A/C Elwell and I attended the Knox County Mutual Aid
Association’s annual meeting. This group of chief officers from throughout the
county work to ensure we all assist each other as no FD’s in the area (or the State
really) can face every incident on their own.

OFFICE OF THE WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITY DIRECTOR
 Worked with David St. Laurent to familiarize him with plant operations.
 Contacted Neuros Turbo Blower representative to assist with a vibration issue in aeration blower #2.
 Revised FMC Industrial User Permit and sent to D.E.P. for review.
 Forwarded the CSO Annual progress report to Wright-Pierce to assist with
populating some of the data to ensure data consistency.
 Completed video inspection of 1600 ft. of sewer main on Limerock Street (from Claremont to Highland). The sewer main west of Broadway is in poor condition and a proposal will be put together to address it. The majority of issues in the sewer east of Broadway appear to be with the sewer laterals and these should be inspected.
 Established a protocol to begin conductivity testing in areas along the waterfront to locate possible problems with saltwater intrusion in the sewer.
 Continued painting of the interior of the headworks building.
 Pumped and cleaned the vortex separator and CSO contact chamber.
 Replaced the #2 filter press feed pump grinder.
 Made repairs to the polymer pump for the secondary clarifiers.
 Added a trap to the floor drain for the floor in the 2nd floor restroom.
 Received order confirmation for the new backup trailer generator for the pump
stations. Estimated delivery is 3-4 weeks.
 The lab did BOD & TSS testing for Northhaven.
 BOD testing for Vinalhaven.
 FMC testing.
 The treatment plant was in a CSO event from Sunday to late Monday caused by the warm weather and snow melt. The plant flows went from 3 MGD to a peak of 10.73 MGD.

OFFICE OF THE SOLID WASTE DIRECTOR

 Tree/limb trimming work on West Meadow Road for two days.
 Sign maintenance and training for four days. Included repairing wooden deck on sidewalk in front of Boat Apprentice shop on Main St.
 Cold patching city streets for two days.
 Crew addressing ice issues on several roads and culverts for a day.
 Assisted with flagging on Limerock St. for sewer tech. team.
 Repaired a catch basin frame on Thomaston Street.
 Washing down trucks and equipment.
 Preparing for potential snow storm due to hit on Saturday.

OFFICE OF THE CHIEF OF POLICE
 Officers responded to 151 calls for service. Rockland Police Officers responded to
seven motor vehicle crashes and three animal complaints. Twenty-eight (28)
traffic stops and traffic violations were conducted. Officers charged or made two
arrests of individuals for various offenses, to include Warrant of Arrest and OUI.
From Maine Identity Services, LLC
 We’ve received an alert about a new scam that we haven’t run across before
and I thought you might want this information:
 (A leading insurance company) in the last eight months has received many
complaints where individuals are representing employees of insurance companies where they inform the individual (Victim) that their recently deceased family member had a life insurance policy and that the policy had lapsed for nonpayment of premiums; however, if they would immediately pay money today
then the policy would be reinstated and the life proceeds would be paid directly
to them. There have been different amounts used; however, in many cases they
were asked to send 5- five hundred dollar money cards (Green Dot Cards) in
order to reinstate this alleged policy. The telephone numbers used to perpetrate
these scams originated out of the State of Alabama. The Georgia Department of
Insurance is involved in several of these complaints.

OFFICE OF THE CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER
 John met with two representatives from CMCA to discuss temporary locations for shipping containers that would be used for art exhibitions to promote the new
CMCA Contemporary Art Center.
 John and David attended the MBOIA Membership Training Meeting 1/22/15 in South Portland. The topic of the training was “Medical Marijuana Regulations and What the Code Official Needs to Know Regarding Zoning and Buildings”.
 There were no complaints filed this week.
 The following permits were received by the Code Office this week:
o 1 Building permit
o 2 Electrical permits
o 2 Plumbing permits

OFFICE OF THE RECREATION DIRECTOR
 The floor in the game room by the TV game area is down and complete and looks very nice. I checked the Maine surplus warehouse and they do not have any furniture at this time. I will be looking for new ways to complete this area.
 The playoffs are on the horizon as the regular season of the 5th and 6th grade
league is almost in the books after this weekend.
 Habitat for Humanity dropped off a plaque to recognize and thank us for our
support of their program. They have groups that come to the area every summer
to build houses for families in this area.
 The hot water has been corrected and we have not had any problems with it
kicking out since. This sounds like a small thing, but it’s a big relief for us and the people that use the building.

Gale force winds could cause power outages in central and southern Maine
Augusta, Maine - Central Maine Power Company (CMP), a subsidiary of Iberdrola USA, is getting ready for a winter storm forecast to move up the east coast and hit Maine on Tuesday.

“We’ve put our storm response plan into motion, and we’re watching the forecast closely,” said Gail Rice, spokesperson for Central Maine Power. “High winds are always a concern, and while the snow is expected to be dry and less likely to coat tree limbs and wires, it could still create tough travel and working conditions.
