Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) and Assemblyman Dave McDonough (R-North Merrick) recently sponsored two emergency preparedness seminars to help local residents learn how to be ready if a hurricane or other emergency arises.
Representatives from the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management and LIPA talked to residents about some of the steps they can take to prepare their families and homes in case an emergency arises. Information was offered about making a household preparedness checklist, what supplies and documentation to have on-hand, and important emergency contact numbers to keep readily available.
Residents who were unable to attend the community meetings but would like information about emergency preparedness can call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630 or Assemblyman McDonough’s office at 516-409-2070.
