Hurricane "Helena" exercise

Planning for the drill with Red Cross on Saturday, the 27th is going well. All members who are participating will receive information about their assignments within the next couple days. We will treat this with the realism and professionalism that it warrants.

The exercise prepares us for a major storm directly hitting Long Island. After Sandy, we all know this is very real and considering the damage sustained by Sandy, we already know how bad it can get. Our participation helps the Red Cross and increases our preparedness to help the citizens we serve. I'm looking forward to working with everyone on enhancing the team's readiness.
