The Chief emphasized the need for the Board of Selectmen to instruct other departments to abide by these guidelines or possible result of the loss of funding and/or grants.

Mosczynski suggested that a letter from the Board looking to adopt NIMS and instruct other departments to abide by these regulations may have to be sent out.
