The state of emergency has been lifted in Marshfield.

Police Lieutenant Paul Taber, who heads up emergency operations in town, says representatives from FEMA and MEMA will be visiting Marshfield later this week:

“If there’s any sites left, we will be visiting the different parts of the community to show them where the damage is. Although most of it has been cleaned up, we do have some pictures and I’m actually putting out a request to anyone who has photos of any of the damage – trees or telephone poles down – to send them to officer@marshfieldpolice.org.”

Lieutenant Taber explains what the priorities are now:

“Protect life, work closely with N-Star to complete the power restoration, work very closely with the school department to ensure a safe start to the school year and we’re also preparing for post-disaster financial recovery as well.”

The Emergency Operations Center in Marshfield remains open Wednesday.
