This timely and must attend event will educate New Jersey Shore Communities most affected by damaging weather emergencies, such as Irene and the Winter Blizzard, on the resources available to them.  The utilities, including electric, phone, water and cable, will share and discuss their emergency planning and communication procedures and provide contact information for cohesive coordination during emergencies.  As we clean-up from Irene this seminar will provide all with an opportunity to discuss future emergency coordination from the preparation to restoration. The afternoon will be dedicated to nuclear utility responses and related community coordination.
