Some of you may remember that Ken and I met with Marian Russo of the The Greater Patchogue Community Organization Active in Disaster (COAD).
We originally planned to hear Marian’s presentation at the September SCRC meeting but that appears to have fallen through the cracks.
Although the North Patchogue Fire Department held some promise, we were unable to secure those locations for meetings. Since that is the case, our team is unable to ask COAD for a presentation.
Despite our inadequacies, COAD continues to march on with their September 30th event in Patchogue.
Since COAD is participating in that event, I am asking if any Team members would be interested in setting up and ACT table or a demo of some kind.
If a few of us can spare a couple of hours to promote our team and show COAD what we are capable of, I will contact Marian to see how ACT may fit into the event.
Let me know no later than September 18th.
From the last COAD email the Team received:
The plans are moving forward for the PrepareAthon on September 30th. Partners interested in participating please let me know.
The COAD will have a table at the St. Liberata Festival on September 26th. Please let me know if you have an hour or two or three to share preparedness information with the community.
October 24th is the Red Cross Fire Safety event. Attached is the flyer. Please share it with your members, friends, and congregants. We are focusing on single-family homes in the Village of Patchogue. If someone is outside they can provide their information so we can find out where the need may be and if a follow-up event is warranted. We are also looking for volunteers for this event.
The next COAD meeting is November 30th at Briarcliffe. Please save the date. Meanwhile, be safe.
