COUNCIL TO HOLD JOINT COMMITTEE MEETINGS ON WINDSTORM RESPONSE
First meeting to take place on Friday, March 2 at 9:30AM in Council Chambers

Seattle-The City Council will hold the first meeting of a joint committee to discuss windstorm response on Friday, March 2, 2007 at 9:30 a.m. in Council Chambers, on the 2nd floor of City Hall at 600 4th Avenue. The joint committee, comprised of the Energy & Technology Committee and the Environment, Emergency Management & Utilities Committee, will review lessons learned from the disastrous windstorm this past December and discuss possible policy changes for utilities and emergency management in preparation for future storms.

"The After Action Report tells us what worked and didn’t work," said Councilmember Richard Conlin, Chair of the Environment, Emergency Management & Utilities Committee. "Now our task is to make changes so that we can improve our response to future incidents."
"This joint committee will ensure that the lessons we have learned from this storm will be put into action," added Councilmember Jean Godden, Chair of the Energy & Technology Committee.

The meeting will include a regional panel that will discuss  disaster response from the perspective of the local American Red Cross, Harborview Hospital, King County and Seattle/King County Public Health , a presentation of the city’s After Action Report, and an opportunity for public comment after the presentations. Subsequent meetings are scheduled for April 6 and May 4, at 9:30 a.m. in Council Chambers, and will focus on City Light’s storm response and next steps.
