Now Ready CERT Member Comes Off ‘Disabled List’ To Help Ready New Yorkers At “National Night Out”

August 3rd, 2010 · 2 Comments

I was thrilled tonight to be able to join my CERT team for the first time since my leukemia returned last November. I took part in the “National Night Out” along with members of our local NYPD precinct in Manhattan. We handed out ReadyNewYork pamphlets, though as I am still building up my stamina I didn’t last long on the streets.

According to its website, “National Night Out” is designed to: heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
