LIVINGSTON, NJ — Remember Hurricane Sandy?  How long was your power out…?

How about the Halloween Nor’easter of 2011?  How many tree branches & wires were down in your neighborhood?

With a Hurricane Watch in our area, Livingston’s Emergency Management Team is advising citizens to be aware of existing and developing rainy conditions and the potential for flooding over the coming days.  Stay alert for information about the progress of Hurricane Joaquin. Our area may experience periods of high wind and heavy rain, with high potential for flooding.

Be Prepared:  

Have a KitBe Registered, Check on Others & Don’t Take Chances: 

Public Works Superintendent Mike Anello reminds residents, “We have a few days’ warning on this storm, so we all have some time to get ready. Do what you need to do to to make sure you and your family will be safe.” “Don’t take chances with this — at least put together the basics of an Emergency Kit,” he continued, “you never know what can happen.”

1. Check on relatives, friends and neighbors who might need help being ready for an emergency.

2. Make sure you’re registered &/or connected with any outlet that can provide you with important information during an emergency:

3. If you don’t have an Emergency Kit, make one: – Make A Kit / American Red Cross Flood Safety Checklist

Start getting ready…  

– Register and/or sign up for any and all news/information outlets that may provide emergency info/updates
– Full tank of gas in car
– Gas for generator (if needed)
– Water: a 3-day supply of drinking water (minimum: 1 gallon per person per day)
– Food (minimum: 3-day supply of non-perishable food)
– Manual can opener for food
– Flashlights & extra batteries
– First aid kit
– Whistle (to signal for help)
– Prescription medications & glasses
– Cash or traveler’s checks
– Local maps

The Emergency Management Team encourages all residents to be prepared. Find additional information and valuable resources at

Mike Anello also reminds residents to  “Stay Safe, Travel Safely”

It’s easy to underestimate the power and force of water and to think we can get in the car and power through water.  

But, if you find yourself on the road during flooding conditions, remember these 4 important facts:   

1. It takes only 6” of moving water to knock down an adult. 

2. All vehicles will float.

3. It takes only 1-2 feet of water to make a car float.

4. Your car will float.

Don’t take a chance. If you come to a street that’s flooded:  Turn Around, Don’t Drown.
