Senator Foley to Educate the Public About Hurricane Preparedness

Senator Brian X. Foley (D – Blue Point) announced today that his office will be making available Hurricane Preparedness Guides and will host a Hurricane Preparedness seminar.

The Hurricane Preparedness Guide is an updated version of the guide offered by Senator Foley while he was Supervisor of Brookhaven Town.

“Hurricane season inevitably brings with it questions about how to prepare and fears about what to do if a storm hits,” said Senator Foley. “This guide contains the information you and your loved ones need to ensure you have a plan in place prior to a storm and the necessary supplies on-hand for during and after a storm. I urge all residents, but particularly those along the south shore, to contact my office or visit my website to obtain a copy.”
