Issue Date: 15-Oct-2007
Abstract: A digital image from the DSNY's 2006 Annual Report. A collection truck is dumping debris during an emergency response to a flood upstate.
Description: The emergency response took place at the end of June, 2006. Information about DSNY’s role in emergency response can be found on nyc.gov: “Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg today [June 29, 2006] announced the deployment of New York City emergency responders to areas of upstate New York ravaged by recent flooding. At the request of the New York State Office of Emergency Management, teams from the New York City Fire Department (FDNY), New York City Police Department (NYPD), Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Department of Sanitation (DSNY) have been called upon to assist in the rescue and recovery efforts in the areas hardest hit by flooding. ... The Department of Sanitation is mobilizing a team of 50 workers including a Deputy Chief, two uniformed superintendents and four supervisors, 32 Sanitation Workers and several civilian support members. The team, headed to Delaware County, is scheduled to depart early Saturday morning from the DSNY’s Zerega Avenue staging area in the Bronx. The DSNY convoy will include 10 cut downs (dump trucks), five front-end loaders, two large tow trucks, two gas trucks, one street flusher, a bulldozer, back hoe, two passenger vans, a road rig, command center, light pack truck and a welding truck. Smaller equipment will be transported on seven low-boy trailers that will be driven up to the flooded areas. All DSNY personnel have volunteered for the humanitarian duty assignment. The DSNY team will be headed by Deputy Chief Nick Vero.” (Press release, “Mayor Bloomberg Announces Mutual Aid Response to Upstate Communities Devastated By Flooding,” nyc.gov, released June 29, 2006, viewed online on October 23, 2007) This image was culled from a disk of unused DSNY 2006 Annual Report Images.
