by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

During his presentation to the Machias Rotary Club on Nov. 28, Mike Hinerman stressed the importance of personal preparation for emergencies. “Because no matter how good the federal agency, the state agency, even the local fire departments and public works, there’s a time delay before they can get to you,” he said. Hinerman serves as the director of the Washington County Emergency Management Agency (EMA).
