DESCRIPTION
Supestorm Sandy: Lessons Learned, Forging Policy for the Future
Thursday, November 15, 2018
Touro Law Center
9 am - 5 pm

Hosted by Touro Law Center and Health and Welfare Council of Long Island.
Funded through a generous grant grom Reva and Martin Oliner.

In the years since Superstorm Sandy impacted Long Island many lessons have been learned about the way a community responds to a disaster. The strong advocacy efforts of our local, state and federal representatives partnered with a prepared and organized community organization response have been nationally recognized as effective and a model for other communities.

This conference will examine our united response from preparation long before the storm to its lingering effects today and how the multi-layered interaction of all aspects of our region worked to make the difficult recovery more effective.

Participants from all levels of government and many community groups will highlight what was successful and what needs improvement and plan to grow our partnership for future disaster response.

It is our hope that with the ever increasing need to manage crisis the participants in this conference will be part of a solution that fashion model policies to be implemented on Long Island, in New York and throughout the nation.
