HUDSON COUNTY LONG TERM RECOVERY PARTNERS WITH WORLD RENEW
TO ASSIST IN SUPERSTORM SANDY RECOVERY
Jersey City, NJ (May 30, 2013) – Many Hudson County residents are still struggling in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy with both property needs and emotional health.
Hudson County Long Term Recovery Committee(HCLTRC) has partnered with World Renew, an international recovery group, to have teams of volunteers open several walk-in centers and conduct home visits of Hudson County residents who have been affected by Superstorm Sandy, primarily in the flood-prone areas. The surveys will be conducted from June 5th through June 18th.
Thousands of households in Hudson County filed applications for FEMA assistance after the storm. The survey is an important step in finding families who need help and making sure that their recovery needs are met. The World Renew volunteers who will be conducting the assessments will be coming from other areas of the country. They are specially trained to assess damage, assist with federal relief forms, and deal with psychological aftereffects from loss.
World Renew volunteers are known as the “Green Shirts” because of their uniforms. The Green Shirts have been conducting the surveys in response to disasters around the country for 20 years and plan on bringing survey teams to all of the heavily impacted communities.
The Green Shirts will staff walk-in Centers for Sandy-affected residents to share their unmet needs. Home visits will be arranged through a call-in number: 551-333-5080. Walk-in center sites include:

As we move ever closer to a warm New Jersey Summer, remind your citizens that the easiest and best way to avoid West Nile Virus is to prevent mosquito bites.
-When you are outdoors, use insect repellent containing an EPA-registered active ingredient. Follow the directions on the packaging.
-Many mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn. Be sure to use insect repellent and wear long sleeves and pants at these times, or consider staying indoors during these hours.
-Make sure that you have good screens on your windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out.
-Get rid of mosquito breeding sites by emptying standing water from flower pots, buckets, and barrels. Change the water in pet dishes and replace the water in bird baths weekly. Drill holes in tire swings so water drains out. Keep children’s wading pools empty and on their side when they aren’t being used.
