Strengthening New York Against Powerful Storms

Project: New York Rising Community Reconstruction Program: Amsterdam Generators 

DASNY’s Role: Installation of Emergency Generators in City/Town of Amsterdam ($1.5 million) 

Details: DASNY installed five emergency standby generators in 2016 to provide emergency backup power for municipal buildings and school emergency shelters in the city and town of Amsterdam, supporting an emergency response plan developed by the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR), the city, the town, and a group of community-minded volunteers. 

Impact: DASNY and GOSR partner for resiliency projects across the state to help communities like Amsterdam recover after powerful storms and help build back better and stronger than before. 

Other projects include improvements to a fire station in the Town of Rotterdam, strengthening beach heads on Staten Island, resiliency improvements at libraries across Long Island and volunteer fire departments in NYC, and dock repairs in Breezy Point, Queens.
