APAI’s attorney, Eric Gillespie, has written another letter to Algonquin. This one mentions the fire hazard the turbines present to the island residents. Turbine fires are not that uncommon. I hear of maybe 10 in a year, and I’m not even paying particular attention. The fire department on Amherst is strictly volunteer and has limited equipment (see comment below, I’ll let you decide how adequate their equipment is for an industrial environment). They can’t carry very much water, and there is no water available in significant quantities on most of the interior of the island. Add to that the necessity of bringing any additional resources over via the ferry and you’ve got a recipe for a major disaster.
