Vainieri Huttle: NJ Must Learn Lessons from Sandy to Better Serve Vulnerable Residents in Future Storms

(TRENTON) - Assembly Human Services Committee Chair Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen) released the following statement on Monday, after hearing testimony on storm preparedness following Hurricane Sandy for persons with developmental disabilities and other vulnerable residents:

"It has been more than a month since Superstorm Sandy ravaged New Jersey, and residents continue to feel the impact. This storm was unprecedented and so was the destruction it caused.

"There is a lot to be thankful for and there are many individuals who deserve our appreciation for helping those in peril during the storm, but there were also some missteps that must be addressed.

"While the storm wreaked havoc for many residents, it was especially dangerous for elderly residents and residents with developmental disabilities whose very well-being is dependent on having working electricity. The power outages experienced during Sandy were inconvenient for most residents, but for this vulnerable segment of the population, they became matters of life and death."
