OEM Call for Volunteers for Hurricane Sandy

The message below is posted on behalf of Associate Dean Brian A. Peterson:

Dear Colleagues:

As you may know, Hurricane Sandy is making its way towards our area, and once again, the SPS team is working closely with the New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) as they prepare our City for this oncoming storm. This is an enormous undertaking, and OEM is currently in need of two volunteers to perform data entry for the City’s resource management system from 8pm tonight through 8am tomorrow morning at the OEM Office in Brooklyn.

If you are available and interested in this opportunity to help our City, please let me know asap, by contacting me via my cell at 646-468-6153.

You may also be of help by forwarding this message to your friends and colleagues.

Many thanks for your consideration,
