As the ranking Minority Caucus member of the County’s Superstorm Sandy Review Committee, Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton recently attended a Sandy Committee meeting held in conjunction with the County’s Office of Emergency Management. The purpose of the meeting was to review what worked during Superstorm Sandy and what could be improved upon in response to a future natural disaster.


Prospective enhancements include working with the Red Cross to educate residents about procedures they should take in advance of an impending disaster and ensure residents know where emergency shelters are located.
To assist with this goal of improving storm preparedness and response across Nassau County, Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton urges everyone to sign up for notifications by visiting nassaucountyny.gov/OEM and clicking on “sign up for alerts.”
