Senator Joe Kyrillos visited the Atlantic County Emergency Shelter in Egg Harbor this morning to applaud the more than 150 out of state emergency responders who are being housed there as they have been dispatched to New Jersey to help with Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts.

The shelter also houses 70 ambulances. While all crews are based out of the shelter in Atlantic County, they are dispersed throughout the state daily, aiding recovery efforts in Hazlet in Monmouth County, Hoboken in Hudson County, and the Meadowlands in Bergen County.

The Executive Director of the Emergency Medical Service Institute, Thomas McElree, has been managing the shelter which provides warm meals and a place to sleep for all the out of state emergency responders.

“Our New Jersey spirit is strong, but we certainly appreciate other states lending us their hard working emergency management personnel to help rebuild after the storm. I salute them, and all those who are putting their lives on hold to come to our rescue,” said Senator Joe Kyrillos.

Senator Kyrillos then traveled to Brick to lend a hand at the FEMA site where food and supplies are being handed out, and disaster assistance is available for local residents.

“I continue to offer my support, assistance, and solace to those who have lost so much. Recovering from the devastation will be long and arduous, but we will emerge Jersey Strong,” encouraged Senator Kyrillos.

In Monmouth County, Senator Kyrillos visited the Oceanport Distribution Site at the Monmouth Race Track.

Senator Kyrillos also made stops today in New Berlin, Camden County and Cinnaminson, Burlington County to meet with residents.
