Thursday - April 4th, 2012 - 1:30 p.m.

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Alert for Nassau and Suffolk Counties this weekend. A Red Flag Warning is a warning issued to area firefighting agencies that conditions are ideal for fire ignition and propagation. Several factors enable wildfires to start easily and spread quickly at this time, including the lack of green vegetation, abundance of available fuels such as dry grass and leaves, warm temperatures and wind.

"NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTING UP TO 20 MPH...RELATIVE HUMIDITIES DROPPING TO NEAR 20 PERCENT...AND DRY FINE FUELS SUCH AS GRASSES AND BRUSH WILL RESULT IN AN ELEVATED RISK FOR THE SPREAD OF WILDFIRES FROM LATE THIS MORNING THROUGH SUNSET. SIMILAR CONDITIONS ARE ALSO LIKELY AGAIN ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY." Open fires and the burning of brush is banned. You are also encouraged to not throw cigarettes on the ground or from your car. A carelessly tossed cigarette on the edge of a college campus, where students were registering for classes, is said to be the cause of the wildfire that burned homes, businesses and 5,500 acres of pine barrens in Westhampton during the summer of 1995. For more information on the Westhampton Wildfire visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Island_Central_Pine_Barrens For more information on the Red Flag Alert visit the National Weather Service at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/view/largemap.ph

Nationwide Emergency Alert Test: Monday, November 7, 2011 - 1:15 pm

On Wednesday, November 9th at 2:00 pm (EST) the federal government will be conducting the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS). The test will last up to three and a half minutes. During this period, regularly scheduled television, radio, cable and satellite shows will be interrupted as the system is being tested. This event will be just a test and not a real emergency alert.

The national Emergency Alert System is an alert and warning system that can be activated by the President to provide information to the American public during emergencies. NOAA's National Weather Service, governors, and state and local emergency authorities also use parts of the system to issue more localized emergency alerts. The test is an important exercise in ensuring that the system is effective in communicating critical information to the public in the event of a real national emergency. A national test will help federal partners and EAS participants determine the reliability of the system, as well as its effectiveness in notifying the public of emergencies and potential dangers both nationally and regionally. The test will also provide the FCC and FEMA a chance to identify improvements that need to be made to build a modernized and fully accessible Emergency Alert System.

Pedestrian Struck by Motor Vehicle: Wednesday, April 14, 2010 3:00 pm  

The Suffolk County Police Department is investigating a fatal motor vehicle accident that occurred on Tuesday, April 13 at 9:05 pm. A pedestrian apparently trying to cross from the east side to the west side of Nicolls Road at South Drive was struck by at least two vehicles. The pedestrian was declared dead at the scene by a Physician Assistant from the Office of the Suffolk County Medical Examiner.

The drivers of two vehicles that struck the pedestrian stopped after the collision and were interviewed by police. A third vehicle may have also struck the pedestrian and continued northbound on Nicolls Road. Suffolk County Police believe the driver of that third vehicle may not be aware that their vehicle may have hit the pedestrian.

The investigation is continuing and detectives are asking that driver to contact the Sixth Squad at 631-854-8652, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS, or University Police at 631-632-3333. All calls will remain confidential.

H1N1 Influenza (Flu) Update: Thursday, March 11, 2010 4:00 pm

Attention Stony Brook Campus Community: Don’t let influenza spoil your plans for Spring Break.

Beginning early in the fall 2009 semester, Stony Brook University hosted several Points of Distribution (PODS) to administer both the seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccines for our campus community. Several thousand students, faculty, and staff availed themselves during this remarkable effort, greatly limiting the cases of Influenza Like Illness (ILI) on our campus. The 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccine is still readily available both on and off campus at Student Health Services, community health clinics, doctors' offices, state and local health departments and many pharmacies.

Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself against 2009 H1N1 flu. And this protection is especially important if you have a health condition, such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, pregnancy and other conditions that increase your risk of serious flu-related complications or hospitalization.

In addition to getting vaccinated, you can also take the following steps to help protect you from getting or spreading the flu and other illnesses while you’re on break:

  • Talk to your health care provider not only about 2009 H1N1, but also other recommended, routine vaccinations you may need if traveling, especially overseas.
  • Visit the CDC’s Travelers’ Health website (website (www.cdc.gov/travel) for more information and healthy travel recommendations to prevent influenza and other illnesses during travel. You can also find special information about spring break travel.
  • Stay away from people who appear sick or are coughing or sneezing. The main way the flu spreads is through the droplets of coughs and sneezes.
  • Practice good hygiene by washing your hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing and sneezing. If soap and water are not available, alcohol-based hand rubs are useful.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Don’t share drinking glasses or utensils – avoid drinking beverages mixed in a common container or eating after others.
  • Stay home (or away from others) if you are sick, for 24 hours after your fever is gone, to prevent others from getting sick too.

Spring Break is a time for rest, relaxation and fun with friends and family. Take the opportunity to get vaccinated before leaving for Spring Break and protect yourself, friends and family against 2009 H1N1 flu. Don’t let influenza spoil your plans — get vaccinated against 2009 H1N1.
