Patrol car and brand-new townwide alarm head police and fire capital requests

When lightning knocked out the municipal emergency alarm system in a current storm, it was a while before anybody was aware of it. Fire Chief Rick Sicard kept in mind the incident in the context of his proposal to replace the old-fashioned system, one of two capital requests he gave the table as the selectmen started their annual capital spending evaluation today.
