Reminder: citizens committee re: con ed emergencies to meet Monday. night.... join CERT team
Release Date: November 19, 2012

Reminder: new citizens committee to lobby officials to enact measures to improve procedures the next time there is a Con Ed power outage to hold first meeting tomorrow evening, Monday November 19 at 7 PM at the cafeteria, Greenburgh Town Hall. Shoprite is donating some refreshments and sandwiches for the attendees.

The recommendations we make will be forwarded to Con Ed and to federal, state, county and local officials. The Governor has also appointed a Commission to come up with recommendations. I wrote a letter to the new co-chairs and advised them of the work of our commission. We will also reach out to the Public Service Commission, Attorney General and other officials. We must lobby for changes so the nightmare we experienced during the long power outages is not repeated in the future.
Meeting will be held in the cafeteria at Town Hall. We're looking for people with ideas, residents who are willing to meet with other public officials, help with lobbying, organizing and research.
FEMA ADVISED that those who suffered losses have till the end of the year to apply for reimbursements. They incorrectly advised residents at the Town Board meeting last week that the deadline was in February.
The best way you can help out is to join the CERT team. The Cert team prepares for disasters. They have a group of volunteers who meet during the year. The CERT team volunteers at emergency shelters (like Hurricane Sandy) --providing assistance to those who are looking for a warm and safe place to stay. They also have organized some blood drives during the year. They are a terrific group of people--very dedicated, helpful and caring.
Peter Edelson, 'pedelson@att.net' is the captain of the CERT team. He is a volunteer. Peter Dandreano (pdandreano@greenburghny.com) is the police officer who is assigned to the team. Please advise them of your interest in joining a great group.
