The Village of Croton-on-Hudson was fortunate to avoid the worst of Hurricane Henri on Sunday. We are all blessed to have such devoted, professional and dedicated staff and volunteers keeping our Village safe.
Prior to the storm, the DPW has checked catch basins and flood-prone areas. Police checked on those listed on our special needs registry. Fire Department directed companies to fuel up apparatus and equipment, and conduct rig checks to ensure their readiness for any contingencies.
I want to especially thank our first responders in the Police, Volunteer Fire Department and Emergency Medical Service, who are our first line of defense in any emergency. Remember that our Fire Department is an ALL volunteer force. The volunteers of the Croton Fire Department & EMS leave their families to brave the storm and protect our families.
Their diligence and their dedication is evident in everything they do. From the Village Manager on down, our staff and volunteers worked with a singular purpose to ensure our community was prepared.
I hope that you are as proud of our team as I am. Please join me in thanking them if you get the chance.
I would also like to express our community’s appreciation for the utility workers that quickly restored power over the course of the storm.
Brian Pugh, Mayor
