Response to Sandy Demonstrates the Value of Training, Resiliency and Collaboration

During his keynote address at the 15th annual New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Conference in Atlantic City, the Honorable Tom Ridge praised emergency and first responders for their impressive response to Superstorm Sandy.

“The emergency management community in New Jersey gets it,” he said. “I’m fascinated by the stories I’ve heard about the response to Superstorm Sandy.” For example, the seamless communication between private and public sectors during the response demonstrated how well those in the state had trained and practiced together, he said.
