Mercer County’s Office of Emergency Management will host an open meeting to obtain public input on the County’s Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan (PDM) on July 20 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Dempster Fire Training Center, 350 Lawrence Station Road. The plan studies the natural and manmade hazards that present the biggest risks to Mercer County, and establishes goals that seek to prevent or lessen the impact of these potential disasters. The main threat to Mercer is flooding, but the plan also targets other hazards. The PDM plan is an effort to prevent and minimize future loss of life, injury, property damage, and economic disruption as a result of natural or man-made disasters. The creation of the PDM plan also makes Mercer County eligible for federal funds to be used to address vulnerable assets or locations.

Upcoming Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) programs include No War, No Warming: Vigil for An Alternative Energy Future from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 7 at Keystone Park  (Baltimore Pike at North Chester Road) in Swarthmore; a July 8 Main Line Peace Action Meeting to plan a Strategy for Reducing Military Spending from 7 to 9 p.m. at 284 South Roberts Road in Bryn Mawr; a Friday, July 16 Rally to Retire Nuclear Weapons from noon to 1 p.m. on the State House Steps in Trenton (carpool from Princeton Shopping Center  at 11:15 a.m.); and, that same day, a Retirement Party for Nuclear Weapons, at 7:30 p.m., at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton. (This site has been moved from its original location, Trinity Church, due to road construction on Mercer Street.) For additional information see www.peacecoalition.org.

The website and on-line tour for the Louis I.
