The Town Council hereby offers its appreciation to members of the South Kingstown Emergency Medical Services team:

 

Lieutenant Frank Capaldi

Paramedic Keith DeCesare

Paramedic Sarah Peet

 

In recognition of their professionalism during an emergency call to the home of Colonel James M. Manni on the evening of July 23, 2021.

The Town Council joins the Manni family in extending their appreciation, and offering their congratulations for a job well done. 

 

            B.        A resolution adopting a proclamation recognizing September 2021 as Military Suicide Awareness Month in the Town of South Kingstown, as follows: Video

 

MILITARY SUICIDE AWARENESS MONTH

 

WHEREAS,    family matters, support matters, and every military Veteran matters, this September, Suicide Prevention Month encourages Veterans and their loved ones to focus on the things that give life meaning, the things that matter; anyone who knows a Veteran can help, and

 

WHEREAS,    whether a Veteran has just returned home or served years ago, their experiences remain with them, their wounds might not be visible, but they need our attention.  We can support Veterans who are dealing with challenges of all kinds; we’re in this together, and

 

WHEREAS,    the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) urges groups and individuals nationwide to stay alert for signs of suicide risk in the Veterans they care about.  If you’re concerned about the Veteran in your life, lending a hand doesn’t have to be hard, just talking about it opens the door to finding support and the Veterans Crisis Line can help, and

 

WHEREAS,    the first step in preventing suicide is to understand the warning signs; people may show signs of risk before considering harming themselves.  Warning signs include: hopelessness, anxiety, agitation, sleeplessness, or mood swings, rage or anger, engaging in risky activities, increasing alcohol or drug abuse, and withdrawing from family and friends.

 

WHEREAS,    the Veterans Crisis Line is a free, confidential resource that Veterans and their families and friends can access any day, any time.  Trained professionals at the Veterans Crisis Line, many who are Veterans themselves are ready to listen, providing free confidential support, 24/7, 365 days a year, and 

 

WHEREAS,    the VA counts on grassroots networks and community organizations to spread the word that support is just a call, click, or text away.  It’s up to all of us to get educated, get involved, and take action to help Veterans access the support and care they deserve, and

 

NOW THEREFORE WE THE TOWN COUNCIL OF THE TOWN OF SOUTH KINGSTOWN proclaim September 2021 as MILITARY SUICIDE AWARENESS MONTH in the Town of South Kingstown and request our residents to let a Veteran know they are not alone and that they matter.

Exhibit 1

 

Town of South Kingstown

Renewed Declaration of Emergency

 

 

On March 15, 2020, pursuant to Sec. 3214 of the South Kingstown Home Rule Charter, the Town Council declared the existence of an emergency. The basis for the Council’s emergency declaration was the danger to health and life posed by the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19, as set forth in Governor Gina Raimondo’s Executive Order 20-02 dated March 9, 2020 declaring a state of emergency, and Executive Order 20-03 dated March 13, 2020 containing a supplemental emergency declaration.  Governor Raimondo extended the state of emergency as set forth in Executive Order 20-23 on April 10, 2020, and it was further extended on May 7, June 4, July 3, July 31, September 2, October 2, November 2, December 2, December 22, 2020, January 19, and February 16, 2021. Governor Daniel McKee further extended the state of emergency on March 16, April 21, May 20, and June 10, July 9, and August 6, 2021.  The Town Council voted to extend the date of the local emergency declaration on April 13, 2020, and it was further extended on May 11, June 8, July 13, August 11, September 14, October 13, November 9, December 14, 2020, January 11, January 25, February 22, March 22, April 26, and May 24, June 28, July 26, and August 10, 2021.

 

Since the Council’s declaration of emergency, the Governor of the State of Rhode Island has issued 187 further supplemental emergency declarations (as of August 16, 2021) relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, and circumstances continue to be of concern both locally, statewide, and nationwide.  On September 3, 2021, Governor McKee issued Executive Order 21-95 further extending the state of emergency to October 2, 2021.  Therefore, the Town Council deems it prudent to declare that a state of emergency continues to exist in Town, and hereby extends the end date of its emergency declaration from September 4, 2021 to October 2, 2021.  The substance of the Council’s declaration of emergency remains in full force and effect, except to the extent that it has been superseded by an Executive Order of the Governor of the State of Rhode Island.

 

The Council hereby delegates the authority to the Interim Town Manager to take any and all actions deemed necessary to address the ongoing emergency. The Interim Town Manager shall report actions taken pursuant to this emergency declaration to the Council and to the public as soon as practicable, including ongoing updates on the Town’s website.

 

This Ordinance shall take effect immediately and remain in full force and effect until October 12, 2021 unless renewed, modified, or terminated by a subsequent ordinance. Provided, however, that if the statewide state of emergency is not extended by executive order of the Governor of the State of Rhode Island on or before October 2, 2021, this Ordinance shall expire on that date.
