Senator John J. Flanagan (2nd Senate District) will be hosting two Emergency Preparedness Seminars to help Long Islanders prepare for any sort of emergency situation. The meetings, which will be held in Nesconset and Stony Brook, will be open to all and will be free of charge.

Representatives of the New York State Emergency Management Office, the Suffolk County Office of Emergency Management and the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) will offer residents expert advice about how to prepare for and deal with an emergency situation. Those in attendance will learn how to prepare a disaster supply kit, develop a family communications plan, and a host of other important safety tips.

The meetings, which both begin at 7:00 p.m., are scheduled for the following dates:

Monday, August 21T uesday, August 22

"Preparing your family for a disaster, as we saw last year with Hurricane Katrina, is simply the best way to deal with and recover from any emergency. We don't like to think about disaster striking our community but we must be realistic and ready ourselves for any situation. I hope you will join me for one of these important meetings so that you and your family can make a plan that I hope you will never have to put into effect," stated Senator Flanagan. "This meeting will enable all residents to learn from and to ask questions of the professionals."

Both events have a capacity of approximately 100, so residents who plan on attending should contact Senator Flanagan's office by calling 631-361-2154 or by sending an e-mail by clicking here.
