HURRICANE IRENE AND SPECIAL-NEEDS RESIDENTS

VIEWS: 0 PAGES: 7

Two days after Hurricane Irene landed, the rain stopped: but chaos ensued -- trees were down, rivers crested, major highways were flooded and many local buildings had several feet of water on the first levels of their buildings. As property managers, they are trained to prepare for these types of emergencies by creating and implementing contingency plans with residents. As a property manager at NewBridge Services, Inc, an agency that develops and manages affordable housing for special needs populations in New Jersey, his team has the added responsibility of ensuring that their residents are kept out of harm's way in the event of an emergency. At a two-story NewBridge sublet in Pequannock, NJ, floodwaters covered the road, and water levels rose almost to the second floor. While the second floor was not damaged, stairs were waterlogged and deemed dysfunctional by local construction officials. As a result, residents were displaced for more than 100 days.
