From Town of Hempstead Supervisor Santino:
Santino Declares State of Emergency; Town Crews Poised to Respond to Storm; Programs to be Cancelled
Hempstead Town’s snow salting and plowing crews are poised to respond as this year’s first major snowstorm approaches our area. A projected major winter blizzard has prompted Hempstead Town Supervisor Anthony J. Santino to announce a State of Emergency effective 11 p.m. on Friday evening, January 22nd. The town will be cancelling all Parks Department and ANCHOR programs and registrations starting tomorrow, Saturday, January 23rd through Sunday, January 24th. Additionally, town Civil Service exams scheduled for Saturday, January 23rd are cancelled and will be rescheduled. A Monday, January 25th meeting of the Town Village Aircraft Safety & Noise Abatement Committee (TVASNAC) has been cancelled. Further, Hempstead Town’s Department of Senior Enrichment programs and transportation will be cancelled for Monday, January 25th.
“The town’s snow team is ready to work to ensure that our roadways are safe and clear,” said Santino. “I am declaring a State of Emergency, requesting that all cars be removed from roadways, and I urge all motorists to limit travel to emergency situations.”
The town is requesting that homeowners remove cars from roadways so that town snow removal crews can effectively and efficiently salt and plow streets. TheSupervisor cautioned residents to limit exposure to the elements as temperatures drop. Frigid temperatures and high windsareforecasted to accompanythe storm. Santino also advised motorists that high winds may create “white out” conditions, which can severely limit visibility. Further, the town reminds residents to place shoveled or blown snow from sidewalks and driveways onto their property, not into local streets.
“We will be doing our part to keep neighbors safe and roads clear,” concluded Santino. “Residents can help by removing cars from roadways and by making sure that snow that is shoveled or blown from walkways and driveways remains on resident’s property. Under no circumstances should snow be placed onto public roadways.”
Assemblyman Todd Kaminsky invites all to attend an important disaster preparedness training program, hosted by the Office of Governor Andrew Cuomo, on Thursday, November 19, 7 p.m., at the Martin Luther King Center, located at 615 Riverside Blvd, Long Beach.
The New York State Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program is a two hour training session for residents to have the tools and resources to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. It includes a free Citizen Preparedness Corps Response Starter Kit.
