DATE: January 22, 2010 INCIDENT: Medical Supplies for Haiti
In a recent memo to all town employees, Supervisor Paul Feiner requested input with respect to donating much needed medical supplies to the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti to the AFYA Foundation, a non-profit organization located at 510 Nepperhan Avenue in the City of Yonkers. Police Officer Peter Dandreano of the Greenburgh Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit whose duties include administering the Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) made arrangements with the AFYA organization to donate medical supplies.
Part of Officer Dandreano’s duties with respect to C.E.R.T. is to store and manage medical supplies that may be needed in the event of a civil emergency. A portion of the present inventory was due to expire in the near future. These supplies would have been discarded once the expiration dates past. The supplies were donated to the AFYA Foundation on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 with assistance from members of the Town of Greenburgh C.E.R.T. and volunteers from the AFYA organization. These much needed medical supplies included cases of bandages, burn kits, disposable surgical sponges and stretcher sheets, oxygen masks, gauze, bandages, trauma dressings and disposable aprons and gloves. All of the above mentioned items are due to be shipped to Haiti on Friday, January 22, 2010.
