Palmieri: City Hall Command Center Performed Well

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) - The City of Utica didn’t suffer from too much damage from Hurricane Sandy, according to mayor Robert Palmieri.

“The majority of calls were for the electrical and limbs being down, utility poles and disabled vehicles and traffic lights malfunctioning,” Palmieri said. “As I said, there was a structural fire.”

Utica also established an emergency command center at City Hall, to handle the influx of calls from residents.

“Was it above normal? Absolutely it was,” Palmieri said. “But, we were able to facilitate through this response team and it was fool-proof.”

Local groups including the Red Cross, National Grid and Utica School District were made available, along with the city’s fire and police personnel.
