COOPERSTOWN — W. Earl Winger, Otsego County Civil Defense Director, Monday suggested to various town supervisors that towns undertake the job of marking buildings in Otsego County which have been approved as fallout shelters.

Appearing before the County Board, the Civil Defense director informed the county legislators about the survey of buildings conducted throughout the country, for which purpose money was appropriated by Congress during the 1962 fiscal year.

“Certain buildings were selected here in Otsego County,” he said. “These will accommodate 50 persons or more. Although other buildings to accommodate a smaller number were selected only those chosen to serve as fallout shelters for 50 or more will be stocked by the government with food and other necessary supplies.”

Mr. Wagner said that there is no money available for making shelters “which is not a simple job as only brick buildings passed the requirements during the survey.”

Thirteen buildings have been approved in Cooperstown; one in Otego; two in Morris; two in Richfield Springs; one in Worcester; one in Schenevus; Oneonta City, 37; Oneonta town, five, and Unadilla, one.
