Princeton Community Television brings you three hours of compelling programming hosted by Jim Hooker, veteran journalist and former senior anchor and managing editor of NJN News on NJN Public Television. In October, it will be two years since Superstorm Sandy swept across the Garden State leaving behind tens of billions of dollars in property damage, businesses destroyed and thousands left homeless. Progress has been made, yet two years later work related to clean-up, rebuilding and relocation remains. “Life After Sandy” is a look at New Jersey after Sandy and what can be learned for future storms. This special broadcast can be seen throughout Labor Day, Monday, September 1.

The final hour of the broadcast explores the cooperative response and recovery efforts of organizations following disasters. Watch as our own Mathieu Nelessen, regional CEO, American Red Cross North Jersey Region, along with Cathy McCann, chair of the New Jersey Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster and chief operating officer of the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and Keith Adams, disaster recovery coordinator for the Episcopal Dioceses of New Jersey and Newark discuss how all disasters start local and end local and what can be done to prepare for the next storm.
