Know Your Zone! Hurricane Awareness Campaign

posted Jun 4, 2014, 1:21 PM by bayimprovementgrp

New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has launched a new "Know Your Zone" hurricane awareness campaign to encourage New Yorkers to find out whether they live in one of the city's six hurricane evacuation zones. Sheepshead Bay is completely within one of the six zones, although in case of emergency, not all residents of all zones will necessarily be told to evaculate.

We encourage everyone to spread the word about the Know Your Zone campaign by showing off badges to their websites and social media, requesting window stickers for display, and sharing this motiongraphic. For hurricane safety preparedness tips and information, or to request a Ready New York hurricane presentation, visit the Know Your Zone website
or call 311.

In spite of the rain, BIG welcomed many guests for our Annual Celebrity Caroling & Toy Drive.  Co-hosted by Fillmore Real Estate and held at their new headquarters at 2990 Avenue U, the event featured live entertainment by Vince Martel & Friends, who performed popular music and holiday carols for the crowd to sing.  Refreshments were furnished by Dunkin' Donuts.  Over two hundred toys were collected at the event, which were delivered immediately afterward to the local women's in time for their holiday party mid-week.  Assemblyman Steve Cymbrowitz stopped by to wish the revelers a happy holiday.
