Murray also said the town participated in preparatory conference calls with National Grid officials, LIPA managers and the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management yesterday to game plan for the pending storm, and develop a protocol for local government and utility cooperation.

“National Grid has assured me they are prepared to handle the challenges presented by today’s snow storm," said the Supervisor. "But, time will tell, and nerves are already frayed from the memories of the Sandy debacle. I reminded the utility they are out of excuses, and residents will be demanding both a top-notch commitment to power restoration and forthright updates throughout this storm.”
