BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Vermont is dispatching snow removal crews to assist in the storm cleanup in Massachusetts.
More than 30 VTrans employees left Sunday for Foxborough, Mass., to help with cleanup. WCAX-TV (http://bit.ly/V7Ht3b) says the workers will be helping with snow removal for the next four days.
Deputy Transportation Secretary Sue Minter says the state learned from Hurricane Irene that it’s important to help neighbors. The last time Vermont was asked to help Massachusetts was following the blizzard of 1978.
The request for aid is part of the Emergency Management Assistance Compact.
