Interest In Boating Safety Issues Spurred By Accident Claiming Three Lives

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 27 July 2012 00:00

The hope is to create better safety on the water through education

Long Islanders are still mourning the deaths of three children who died in a boating accident aboard the Kandi Won on July Fourth in Oyster Bay Harbor. It has spurred elected officials to look into boating safety. United States Senator Charles E. Schumer, joined by the parents of Long Island boating victim, Victoria Gaines, called on the United States Coast Guard to require capacity limits for recreational boats over 20 feet in length and require that those limits be visibly posted onboard to educate and warn operators and their passengers of the vessels’ total passenger capabilities and weight load. 

“In the memory of the children we lost on that awful day, we can take some simple steps to educate and warn boat owners and their passengers how many people a vessel can safely handle,” said Senator Schumer. “It doesn’t make much sense that we require capacity limits to be posted for most everything from ballrooms to classrooms, and boats under 20 feet in size, but not recreational vessels over 20 feet.”

The store is expecting to open again in early to mid-August.

FEMA awards more than $12.7 million to reimburse LIPA for repairs caused by Hurricane Irene

What the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) learned from Hurricane Irene was LIPA District Manager Lauren Brookmeyer’s as she spoke at the June 28 East Norwich Civic Association meeting. It was a timely topic since U.S. senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, and congressmen Steve Israel and Tim Bishop announced on July 6, that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is awarding more than $12.7 million to reimburse LIPA for repairs to the electrical power transmission and distribution system to repair damages caused by Hurricane Irene. 

Congressman Tim Bishop brought the message home to residents in the grant announcement saying, “This federal aid will help offset the cost of restoring power after Hurricane Irene, sharply reducing the burden on LIPA customers.” He added “FEMA’s response shows a strong commitment to Long Island taxpayers.”
