Kings Bay Y
The impact of Super Storm Sandy in Sheepshead Bay was magnified by the lack of community organization (residents, businesses, and nonprofits), and difficulty in coordinating recovery efforts. The purpose of the project is to establish disaster recovery services, in Sheepshead Bay, that provide recovery information, support in recovery efforts, and the ability to receive recovery services in centralized locations in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy through response and recovery workshops.
Currently working on a project with New America to help make our community be more resilient by setting up a back up Wi-Fi along the bay(Emmons ave) in Sheepshead bay. The Wi-Fi network will empower Sheepshead bay and our community by helping in communications efforts and ensure that emergency services are provided where and when needed.
