Bushnell Readies Shelter

Bushnell, IL – Bushnell's city council is preparing two buildings to handle emergency power so they can be used as shelters. A powerful portable generator has been ordered. Mayor Steve Russell says the buildings will be re-wired to accept a sub-panel of the electrical system that will be powered by the generator. Bushnell says the buildings were chosen because both have kitchens. Each also has a gymnasium or multi-purpose rom which could be used for sleeping or other shelter activities.
