Protecting families from catastrophe


With hurricane season on the horizon, Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton and New York state hosted a New York State Emergency Preparedness Workshop at the Glen Cove Senior Center on Monday, Aug. 28. The event taught a crowd of 100 participants how to protect themselves and their families amidst a catastrophic event.
Presented by the state’s Citizens Preparedness Corps, the workshops gave residents the tools and resources to prepare for any type of natural or man-made disaster, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions.
Each family participating received a free Citizen Preparedness Corps Response Starter Kit filled with emergency prep essentials.
