Last night and early this morning, thousands of City employees — police officers, firefighters, and emergency crews from almost every department and agency — mobilized to deal with the effects of one of the worst storms in our history. They did — and are doing — great work.
Today’s most important tasks are clear: Keep vulnerable seniors and children cool and safe
Help the utility companies identify and repair the most critical outages
Restore basic traffic signals and rights-of-way
Ensure and enforce public health standards
Develop and maintain multiple lines of communications between emergency personnel and residents who need them
Inspect and secure those structures most affected by the storm
We will do this together.
