Hempstead Town and Island Park’s school district today will host a seminar designed to help superstorm Sandy-affected homeowners restore their properties.
The program, “Recovering From Flood Damage,” will be presented by Southern Baptist Convention Disaster Relief at Lincoln Orens Middle School.
The seminar “will provide homeowners with essential knowledge of sanitizing procedures, safety practices and rules for removal of contaminated wallboard, flooring and other building materials in flooded homes,” Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray said in a statement.
Volunteer groups who want to help residents rebuild are also encouraged to attend the seminar, Hempstead officials said in a statement.
The free 1 1/2-hour seminar begins at 7 p.m. at the middle school, which is located at 150 Trafalgar Blvd. in Island Park.
