Any word on the companies being activated for the hurricane? I recall citywide having stuff set up for Irene.

Mandatory evacuations for Zone A, as was with Hurricane Irene.

I'm safe here with S.I. Fire Hqts just a few steps away. We seem to always get power restored quickly on my block, maybe it's because of my neighbors and their red & white trucks (LOL).

I  am guessing that if power does go out  in areas that effect firehouses there will be someone monitoring the radio via company apparatus.

It is a crime that the powers that be did not see fit to repair the numerous Alarm Boxes STILL out of service since the 2 Tornadoes on 9-16-10......these boxes certainly could be needed in the event of a widescale power outage/cell phone overload.
At least we have expensive bike lanes for the tree debris to be stacked in.
