Mangano Launches Relief Mission To Louisiana Flood Areas

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, in cooperation with the Nassau County Fire Marshal’s Office, the Office of Emergency Management and the Terry Farrell Fund, will be sending emergency supplies to areas in flood stricken Louisiana. This mission begins Monday, August 29th.

“I am very pleased that we are able to come to the rescue of our Louisiana friends who unselfishly supported us in the aftermath of Super storm Sandy,” said County Executive Mangano. “I thank Brian Farrell and the Terry Farrell Fund for their cooperation in making this relief mission a reality. It is that fund that will supply volunteers and vehicles to complete the mission. Nassau County owes volunteers from across America who helped us recover from Sandy. It is gratifying to be able to provide some assistance to the flood victims in Louisiana.”

County Executive Mangano announced that the County Fire Marshal’s office has collected much needed fire and emergency equipment to be sent to affected areas. He also stated that the County’s Office of Emergency Management will be sending water and pallets of MRE (Meals Ready to Eat) packages. These items have a limited shelf life and will be distributed to residents who need non-perishable food.

The relief mission was organized to assist Louisiana Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser who, while serving as a Louisiana parish president in 2012, traveled at his own expense to Long Island with three colleagues to provide aide at the County’s Sandy response center at the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) in Bethpage. Since then, Nungesser has maintained a professional friendship with OEM Commissioner Craig Craft.

Another effort to assist the Louisiana victims is being organized among several southwest Nassau communities. The office of Hempstead Town Councilman Anthony D’ Esposito is coordinating a drive to gather additional supplies for transport. The effort involves local fire houses and community groups assembled through Oceanside Action. Drop off points are being created at fire houses in Island Park, Freeport, Oceanside, Baldwin and Long Beach. For information on donations please call Ellen Cutler-Igoe at 516-662-9447.

“Louisiana volunteers helped us in 2012 now it is our turn to help residents there. Let’s do all we can!” said Ms Cutler-Igoe. Also assisting her is Terry Reichel of the Island Park Residential Chamber. Vehicles will be delivering the additional supplies within the next few weeks.
