to sign up for Smart911

Protect your loved ones by creating a Smart911 Safety Profile.

Smart911 allows individuals to create a private and secure Safety Profile for their household which includes any information they want 9-1-1 and response teams to have in the event of an emergency. When a citizen makes an emergency call, their Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker, allowing them to send the right response teams to the correct location with the right resources. Your profile can include details such as family members, medical notes, pets and emergency contacts.

Please visit www.smart911.com for more information or view the Smart911 Flyer

The Smart911 app provides greater access to the lifesaving benefits of Smart911

CORONAVIRUS PREVENTION INFORMATION

COVID-19 INFORMATION
 
While social distancing and frequent hand washing will help to slow the spread of COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus, here is some additional information that you may find helpful:

Medical Professionals Needed
* New York State Department of Health seeks to expand the number of medical professionals.
Anyone who is a retired health professional who wishes to supplement capacity on a temporary
basis, may be recertified by the NYS Department of Health. 
If interested, please fill out a survey at: https://www.health.ny.gov/assistance/

Blood Supply is Low
*Our nation's blood supply is low.  While many people may be understandably hesitant to donate blood
right now, the Red Cross has taken special precautions to keep you, an them, safe while donating blood.
It's more important than ever. If you are able, please consider scheduling an appointment to
donate by visiting:  https://rdcrss.org/2WgWshG

Water Supply
The coronavirus has no impact on the water supply.  The Manhasset Lake Water District and the
Water Authority of Great Neck North will continue to provide water service.

Manhasset Lakeville Water District letter re: Safety of water supply

Drive-thru Testing at Jones Beach and Stony Brook University
*By now you may have heard that drive-thru testing is located at Jones Beach
and Stony Brook University.
DO NOT GO WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT. 
Appointments are required. 
If you have symptoms, call the coronavirus hotline at 1-888-364-3065  to schedule an appointment.

Telehealth Services Covered by Medicare
*The federal government is encouraging older adults to use telehealth services, so they can have their
symptoms assessed from home, reducing person-to-person contact.  Medicare will cover telehealth services.

Loans for Small Businesses
*If you have a small business that is struggling, you can submit a loan request to the
Small Business Association (SBA). 
Call 800-659-2955 or email:   disastercustomerservice@sba.gov for more information
 
Other Support Services

HELPING OUR ENVIRONMENT

As we face the present COVID-19 pandemic, we are reminded of the interconnection of all life and our need to be mindful of how our actions and choices affect both the natural world and the human communities in which we live.

With the arrival of spring, we are asking residents to take a few simple steps to help our environment:

1. Use low nitrogen fertilizer on your lawn.
    (5-10-10 is good) or organic fertilizers, such as manure, compost, straw and
    leaves, also add nutrients to the soil

2.  Wait until mid-April (right when the grass starts to grow) to put down fertilizer

3.  Do not use Round Up or pesticides/herbicides on your lawn.
     These weed killers are known carcinogens. There are organic options.

4.  Water irrigation – Limit watering lawns…do less frequently  

5.  Share these tips with your landscaper.

 

 

STORM SEASON IS UPON US

PSEG reminds customers of the following:

To report downed wires or power outages, customers should call PSEG Long Island’s Customer Service line at1-800-490-0075

Our Outage Map can be found at https://outagemap.psegliny.com/  and reports outages in your community, as well as estimated restoration times.

MyAlerts, PSEG Long Island’s text message service, can be used to report and receive
status updates on an outage. Since this requires an account number for a one-time registration,
it’s best to do it beforehand. To register, text REG to PSEGLI (773454) or visit the
"My Account" section of the website at 
www.psegliny.com/account.
Once registered, to report an outage, simply text OUT to PSEGLI (773454).

 

Spring Tree Planting

The Village is currently accepting requests from residents who would like a street tree planted
 along the curb in front of their property.
Interested residents must call the Village Hall to be placed on the request list.
Approval of the request is subject to a site visit to determine if there is sufficient room for planting. 
We expect to plant the following varieties of trees, subject to availability:

October Glory Maple (Acer Tartaricum, var. 'Rubrum')
Japanese Tree Lilac (Syringia Reticulata - var. 'Ivory Silk', 'Summer Snow' or 'Regent")
Goldenrain (Koelreuteria Paniculata)
Summer Sprite Litlleleaf Linden (Tilia Cordata, var. 'Halka')

(click on any name to view a photo of all varieties)

Requests will be fulfilled on a first come, first served basis.  Quantities are limited. 
Any resident requests that cannot be fulfilled this spring will be carried over to fall.
 



Introducing Thomaston's Little Library

On Sunday, July 28, 2019 a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
for the Village's first Little Library, was held
at Avalon Island (intersection of Avalon Road & N. Avalon Road)

Check out our Little Book House.  Residents are encouraged to leave a book or take or book.

 

 

 

 


WATCH OUT FOR TELEPHONE SCAMS!

Residents of the Village have reported receiving phone calls from individuals
claiming to be employees of utility companies such as PSEG.  These individuals are threatening to
cut off service due to an outstanding account balance and are demanding payment
via a pre-paid debit card or Green Dot MoneyPak which must be purchased at 7 Eleven. 
There is a similar IRS scam in which victims are told they owe back taxes, fees or
fines which must be paid immediately with a Green Dot MoneyPak.


THIS IS A SCAM. DON'T BE A VICTIM!

If you receive such a call, hang up. 
Utility companies and government agencies will not contact you by phone to demand payment.
