One year since Hurricane Sandy left Ridgewood residents without power for more than a week, the Ridgewood Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is continuing preparations for upcoming storm seasons and is encouraging residents to do the same.

“We’re just about approaching the one-year anniversary (of Sandy),” OEM Coordinator Jeremy Kleiman said during a presentation to the Village Council. “It’s a good time to take stock of where we are and what we’ve done.”

The OEM has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grants for emergency generators to be placed in Ridgewood schools and the library, places where people tend to congregate after storms, according to Kleiman.

  3. Who ever was in charge of NJT at the time should have been fired and not helped out and covered for by the fat man. #2 why not pay a little more attention to the articles you read before making an idiotic remark.

  4. Whats the matter #3? You a union lacky who didnt get their cost of living increases you wanted? Idiots like you bankrupted this state.

  5. woh woh, my boy .I’m not in the union but they did build this hole place up. any big site was built by the union workers of all the trades. so to # 3 I don’t know what your trad is, we all would like to know. then we can go forward in this nice clean talk.
