To assist you and your family in honoring the victims of September 11 th, as well as the brave men and women in our military who fight to defend our nation’s freedoms, I have provided information below about the special “New York Remembers” exhibitions taking place throughout New York State. I hope that you are able to participate in one of these important events.
Thirty “New York Remembers” 9/11 Exhibitions Across the State
The Port Richmond Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is an active volunteer team established in October 2005. The team has amassed over 40,000 hours of community service by covering all of Staten Island. We are looking to recruit Islanders who want to ‘give back’. The New York City Office of Emergency Management is offering their fall training course, beginning October 6th.
The State Insurance Department has created a hotline for people who have insurance related questions in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. The line will be open from 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.. Call 1-800-339-1759 to speak with a represenative from the State Insurance Department.
