Recently, Nassau County Legislator Richard Nicolello hosted a districtwide Hurricane Preparedness Forum at the Mineola Community Center. Legislator Nicolello was joined by Commissioner James Callahan from the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management, Mike Arcari from the Nassau County CERT (Civilian Emergency Response Team), and Jim Brida from the American Red Cross.
The three speakers addressed the audience on Hurricane Preparedness and Safety topics including the development of a family emergency plan, survival kit essentials, Nassau County evacuation plans, and organizational tips to prepare residents before, during, and after a natural disaster. In addition, the Office of Emergency Management and the Red Cross had many samples and giveaways for the audience.
