In case of serious weather conditions or any other kind of emergency, this page will be updated to give CenterLight Health System employees the information they need to stay safe and report to work as needed.
Emergency Information Resources
In the event of an emergency, all employees are instructed to call the CenterLight telephone hotline, 718-519-4124, check CenterLight’s website and/or consult the company Intranet for information on how to proceed with their work day.
Staff Emergency Reporting Guidelines
Staff should note that as long as public transportation is operating, they are expected to come in for their regular shifts. Should conditions worsen, please check this website and/or the Intranet, call our hotline or contact your manager if you anticipate a problem reporting into work as scheduled.
Those not scheduled to work, but who are in positions that could be called upon in an emergency, should also check in periodically for updates. New information will be posted if public transportation is shut down and if relevant areas are affected by power outages, etc.
The New York City travel ban has been lifted and Mass Transit resumes service today, on a modified schedule.
Service will be restored to the following lines by 9 a.m., with some delays.
Bus service resumed at 7 a.m. Expect delays and route changes.
Metro-North will start to restore service at outlying stations after 12 p.m. and hopes to be running in and out of Grand Central Terminal by 3 p.m. Trains will operate on a Sunday schedule.
State and local roads, as well as bridges and tunnels, have reopened.
If, despite the resumed service, you still have problems reporting in to work, please call Sal Manna at 347-234-0609 for transportation assistance.
Please note that CenterLight Shuttle Service is suspended for Monday, January 25. The Hutchinson Metro Center shuttle will be operational. Check back for updates regarding Tuesday, January 26.
Because road conditions are still slippery, employees are still strongly encouraged to take mass transit. Because many side roads remain unplowed, employees must meet any requested CenterLight transportation at the nearest main road intersection.
Review of Response Plans
All staff should review their Emergency Response Plans to ensure they have current contact information for staff and outside resources.
