"With many experts predicting an active hurricane season, we all need to be pro-active in our approach to preparing this year. These seminars are designed to provide residents with the expert advice they need to get ready for and recover from an emergency. While it is information that we all hope we never have to use, it is essential that as a community we are as prepared as we can possibly be," stated Senator Flanagan.
All of the events have a limited capacity, so it is advised that residents who plan on attending should contact Senator Flanagan's office by calling 631-361-2154 or by sending an e-mail byCLICKING HERE .
