A donation from a private company will enable the town of Ashland to receive a Flashing Alert sign that will notify citizens and travelers of emergency messages being broadcast on Hanover AM 1700.
NextEra Energy Resources, parent company of Doswell Limited Partnership, worked with Hanover Fire/EMS and the Town on the donation, which was announced this week. The donation will enable Hanover Fire/EMS to place the Flashing Alert sign on a location permitted by Town Council, potentially in the median strip near the intersection of U.S. Rt. 1 and Rt. 54.
“We’re doing this because public safety is a top priority for our company,” said Ron Rosinski, Environmental Specialist. NextEra Energy’s plant is located in the Doswell area and is part of NextEra Energy Resources fleet of clean and renewable energy facilities.
Ashland Police Chief Douglas A. Goodman, Jr. expressed his appreciation to NextEra Energy for the donation.
