Clean up of Fire Island to begin late this month
January 10, 2013 by Mark
Efforts to clean up Fire Island, which is located approximately 20 miles to the east of Central Islip and was devastated by Hurricane Sandy back in late October, are scheduled to begin later this month.
FEMA, local municipalities, and the state of New York will start the debris removal process late in January. It is currently expected that the majority of work will be completed by the summer of this year. Governor Cuomo stated:
“Fire Island is enormously important to the economy and quality of life for Suffolk County and our State. I am incredibly proud of the cooperation between the communities, their leaders and government agencies in tackling the logistical issues looking to hamper cleanup efforts in Fire Island.”
As cleanup efforts get underway and Fire Island and other areas nearby that were hit by the devastating hurricane last October return to everyday life, local printing companies in the area may be utilized to provide a number of printing services to help businesses in the area get back on their feet. Catalog Printing, Postcard Printing, and other forms of advertisement are just a couple of the services that may be required. Stationery printing and business card printing may also be necessary for businesses that may have lost previous supplies of these documents in the storm.
Around $30m in relief funds has been approved for the removal of debris on Fire Island that occurred as a result on Hurricane Sandy. The Army Corps of Engineers will oversee the work and will continue cleanup efforts with the communities affected by Hurricane Island and the state of New York after homeowners submit applications for Right of Entry.
