Issued by: Town of Hempstead, Office of Supervisor Laura Gillen

- New York State to Assist Town in Emergency Preparedness -

(HEMPSTEAD, NY) March 20 2018 – “I am thrilled that the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services will be reviewing potential threats to three of our town properties, including Town Hall. As the tragic events in Florida and the recent bombings in Texas remind us, we can never be too cautious when it comes to preparing for and doing our best to prevent catastrophes in our community. I especially thank our Deputy Comptroller Richard Ramos for taking the initiative and requesting this assessment to protect our residents, staff and elected officials. I look forward to working with the Town Council and the NYS Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services on moving this critical initiative forward.”
