Mayor Matthew J. Doherty today announced that the Borough of Belmar Officials will conduct a day of service on Wednesday, April 30th in partnership with FEMA. Borough and FEMA Officials will visit every Belmar Business to deliver information on disaster preparedness and Borough services.
The borough is participating in FEMA’s America’s PreparAthon, a national day of action to educate residents, business owners and officials in communities across the nation about the importance of preparing for a potential disaster.
“This day of service will get Borough officials out of their offices and into the streets, visiting our small businesses door-to-door. Information about Borough services and disaster preparedness will not only help our business to better respond to emergencies and disasters, but strengthen the relationship between the Borough and our business community.” Said Mayor Doherty.
As Borough officials go door-to-door, representatives from FEMA will be on hand to support them in delivering this important information to the community. The goals of America’s PreparAthon are to encourage Americans to understand what disasters are likely to happen in their community, know what to do to be safe, prepare for future disasters and participate in community resilience planning.
With the summer season just around the corner, the Borough of Belmar and FEMA’s PerparAthon offers businesses and the larger community an opportunity to learn about the steps we can take to prepare for and protect against another natural disaster rolex replica uk.
