Supervisor Carpenter Declares State of Emergency in Islip

January 4th, 2018 – Town of Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter declared a state of emergency in the Town of Islip at 12:01 am Thursday, January 4th, in response to Winter Storm Grayson, a severe winter storm in the Town of Islip, that brought heavy snow and icing, strong winds, extreme low temperatures, impassable roads, potential coastal flooding and other blizzard related hazards.

“Visibility is very poor, winds are high and driving conditions are extremely dangerous,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “Such conditions imperil the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Town of Islip. I’m urging everyone to stay safe and stay indoors. If you have an elderly or homebound neighbor, I would ask that you check on them when it’s safe to step outside,” she added.


Town Officials Prepare for Storm Grayson

January 3rd, 2018 – Town Officials spent the day monitoring the storm track of Grayson, set to hit Long Island early Thursday, bringing anywhere between 5-11” of snow before it ends Thursday evening. Supervisor Angie Carpenter, along with Public Safety and DPW personnel, implemented storm preparation procedures Wednesday, and were in constant communication with school superintendents, preparing for possible school and recreation center closings Thursday.

“We’re in storm preparation mode,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “Temperatures are expected to drop into the single digits, with wind chills making the ‘feel-like’ temperature negative double digits. Please keep your cars off the roadways, so that Town equipment can pass safely and effectively, remove basketball hoops from the streets, and stay indoors, unless absolutely essential that you go outside. We want our residents and our crews to weather this storm safely,” she said.

The Town of Islip DPW is prepared with 15,000 tons of salt and 10,000 yards of sand/salt mixture. When the Town’s plow operation is implemented, more than 400 plows, including the Town’s Parks and Waste Management division, will be fueled, loaded with material and on the road.
