Table of Contents

WHEREAS, I have directed each of the appointing authorities mentioned in Acts of 1950, chapter 639, section 13, who has not yet done so to appoint forthwith a director of the local organization for civil defense and have further directed that the name, address and telephone number of each director so appointed be forwarded by the appointing authority concerned to the director of civil defense of the Commonwealth; and

WHEREAS, an efficient civil defense program will require coordination and simultaneous action by each city and town; and

WHEREAS, it is essential to such coordinated and simultaneous action that each city and town of the Commonwealth have a director of the local organization for civil defense:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Paul A. Dever, Governor of the Commonwealth, acting under the provisions of Acts of 1950, chapter 639, and all other authority vested in me, do hereby issue this order as a necessary preparatory step in advance of actual disaster, emergency or catastrophe.

1. The director of civil defense of the Commonwealth is hereby directed to furnish me on September 25, 1950, with a list of all cities and towns of the Commonwealth which have not, as of that date, notified him of the name, address and telephone number of the director of the local organization for civil defense, in order that I may take steps to appoint a director of the local organization for civil defense in each of such cities and towns.

GIVEN at the Executive Chamber in Boston this twelfth day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and seventy-fifth.

By His Excellency the Governor, Paul A. Dever
