LOHUD: BALL, UTILITY REPRESENTATIVES, LOCAL OFFICIALS TO TALK STORM RESPONSE

Posted by: Mike Risinit

State Sen. Greg Ball, R-Patterson, will hold a “Storm Response Round Table” next week to talk about how the best storm and natural-disaster response can be provided “to our constituents and customers throughout the Hudson Valley Region.”

The gathering comes after the Hudson Valley suffered through a tropical storm and then an October nor’easter. Topics to be discussed, according to Ball, include:

•            Why do so many of our fellow neighbors lose electrical power in their homes and businesses during a natural disaster like a snow or rain storm?

•            What must be done to enable the homes and businesses in our region to retain electrical power during and after a natural disaster or storm?

•            How can we improve response times for service to constituents and customers from all government agencies and utility companies?

•            What can we learn from the October 30th Nor’easter and Hurricane Irene?

•            How can the local municipalities, utility companies, first responders and state officials work better together to ensure all residents are safe, and services are restored in a timely and efficient manner?

The round table will take place December 8 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Yorktown Town Hall.
