CBS Info for Volunteers/Residents

1) Don't drive if you don't have to, and carpool if you must. Until electricity and public transit services are restored in Manhattan our communities will continue to lie in the direct path of commuters and other travelers driving between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Please don't clog the streets further. And, if you must drive, ride sharing is a great option.
2) Continue to call 311 for non-emergencies and requests for service. If you see downed trees and limbs, don't assume the City knows they are there. Call them in to 311.
3) Give blood. Some of the City's blood supplies were contaminated from flood waters and need to be replaced. NY Methodist Hosptial and SUNY Downstate LICH are always eager to accommodate donors.
4) Be aware! Information is being updated rapidly. You should consider signing up for the City's emergency notification message service - Notify NYC - available at: https://a858-nycnotify.nyc.gov/notifynyc/
