8/16 – Workshop on Disaster Recovery Slated for Monday in Sea Bright

SEA BRIGHT- A workshop will be held at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 18, hosted by Farmers Insurance and the St. Bernard Project, to explore how public and private entities are working together in New Jersey to improve disaster recovery efforts, specifically with groups like Sea Bright Rising.

Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr., D-6, is expected to attend a workshop.

In May, Farmers Insurance and the St. Bernard Project, a national disaster recovery nonprofit organization, launched the Disaster Recovery Playbook, a compilation of best practices that communities can utilize to ensure a faster and more complete recovery following a disaster.

Sea Bright Rising, a local non-profit organization dedicated to helping residents rebuild in the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy, has partnered with the St. Bernard Project to implement a residential rebuilding program in Sea Bright to serve residents who own homes but lack the financial means necessary to rebuild on their own.

In June, Farmers made a commitment to Sea Bright Rising to provide much needed funding and weekly volunteers through the end of 2014.

Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr., D-6, is expected to attend a workshop.

Pallone also will tour a Sandy-damaged home currently being repaired by Sea Bright Rising. He will be joined by Deb Aldredge of Farmers Insurance, Zack Rosenburg of the St. Bernard Project, Chad Carson of Sea Bright Rising and Mayor Dina Long.
