Islip Town to Host a Series of Hurricane Preparedness Forums

Residents and Business Owners Encouraged to Attend These Informational Events

Islip, N.Y. – The Town of Islip will host a series of public forums to help residents and businesses prepare for future hurricanes and significant storms. Multiple agencies will be on hand at each meeting to answer questions on a variety of topics, including loss of electricity, communications during an emergency, and handling medical emergencies during a storm. Other topics will detail how residents can best prepare their families and their homes for hurricanes, which may require that all family members be ready to evacuate if the need arises. Forums have been planned at various locations throughout Islip Town.

“Hurricanes pose a very real threat to our Town, and every household needs to prepare and have a plan,” said Islip Town Supervisor Tom Croci. “Although our coastal communities are most at risk, even our inland neighborhoods are threatened by the loss of electricity, downed trees, and lack of access to first responders in the immediate aftermath of a storm. In short – preparation now can prevent tragedy later.”
