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.”

Senator Foley will be hosting a Hurricane Preparedness Seminar on August 17, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. at the Patchogue Fire Department, located at 15 Jennings Avenue in Patchogue. Presentations will be made by the State Emergency Management Office (SEMO), Suffolk County Fire Rescue and Emergency Services, and other organizations. For more information or to RSVP, please call 631-231-0517.

“I look forward to seeing many of you at the seminar on August 17th,” said Senator Foley. “Together, we can ensure the safety of all of our residents in the event of a hurricane.”
