The Hastings-Quinte area may soon be the subject of a critical infrastructure study in connection with possible major disasters.
Developers of a “critical infrastructure” study have approached Hastings County with the idea of doing a study to show what effect a major disaster would have on the area.
The project is part of the Canadian Safety and Security program of the National Defense research division.
Acting chief of emergency services John O’Donnell says the scenario chosen is the effect of a major flooding over the entire county.
He says the developers want to take on the project as part of checking out their product.
The joint emergency services committee is recommending county council approve taking part in the study.
