Assembly Member Micah Kellner reports:
On December 1st, I will be hosting, along with the American Red Cross of Greater New York and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, a free emergency preparedness presentation that aims to teach New York City residents how to create a plan, build a supply kit, and keep loved ones safe and informed in the event of a disaster.

All participants will receive an interactive CD that can be used at home to create a customized evacuation plan. The first 100 people to register will receive a complimentary Red Cross Go Bag at the event packed with the essentials you and your family need to have on hand in case of an emergency.

The event will be held Tuesday, December 1st, from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. in Rockefeller Research Laboratories auditorium (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center) located at 430 East 67th Street between York and First Avenues. Please call 212-860-4906 or e-mail to RSVP for this important event.
More information on New York City emergency preparedness is available at Ready NYC. Also, according to RIOC:
... The Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation has its own Corporate and local response emergency preparedness plan. Working in conjunction with all Operating Corporation Departments, and with City and State Agencies (when necessary), the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation is committed to being prepared in the event of an emergency. Roosevelt Island has an Emergency Management Committee that meets bi-annually. This committee is made up of our community partners and citizens to give guidance on our preparation and mitigation efforts....
