Officials from Elk Township and the Oxford Gun Club have reached an agreement that will allow the township to use the gun club's facilities in the event of an emergency. Pictured are Brandon Chadwick, an Oxford Gun Club member, Leslie Damron, the Oxford Gun Club secretary, Estace Walters, the Elk Township Board of Supervisors vice chairman, Steve Roberts, the Elk Township Emergency Management Coordinator, and Hank Henry, the Oxford Gun Club president.



The Elk Township Board of Supervisors has reached an agreement with the Oxford Gun Club that will allow the township to use the Gun Club's facility if the township building becomes uninhabitable or inadequate during an emergency.

Elk Township has an Emergency Operations Plan, and that plan includes making arrangements to be able to continue the functions of local government even if the township building is uninhabitable or inadequate. The Gun Club is at the other end of the township so it is unlikely that a single event would make both locations uninhabitable.

Estace Walters, the vice chairman of the Elk Township Board of Supervisors, said, "We want to be prepared for emergencies, and the cooperation of the Oxford Gun Club strengthens our plan."

Hank Henry, the President of the Oxford Gun Club said, "We are committed to being good neighbors, and we are glad that we can support the Elk Township supervisors."
