Legislators Rob Trotta and Stephanie Bontempi invite the public to join them at a free, public information meeting where Ken Kutner, Community Emergency Evacuation Coordinator for the Suffolk County Office of Emergency Management discusses potential hazards that residents should be aware of and how to best prepare for all types of emergencies. He will also address programs that Suffolk County offers to keep residents informed and safe, including Smart911 and Suffolk Alert. Mr. Kutner is also a volunteer with the East Northport Fire Department and its former chief.
“As Chair of the Fire, Rescue and Emergency Medical Services & Preparedness Committee, I am pleased to bring this program to our residents to ensure that they know how to prepare, plan and respond in an emergency or hazardous situation,” said Legislator Rob Trotta, who is a retired Suffolk County Police Detective.
Legislator Bontempi added, “As recent events have demonstrated, being prepared for a variety of emergency situations should be a priority for everyone. Having the opportunity to get some helpful tips from a preparedness expert is a great first step towards achieving a more secure future.”
