NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A new report prompted by Superstorm Sandy says New York City should buy more police boats and develop a system to track patients after hospital evacuations.
Deputy mayors Cas Holloway and Linda Gibbs discussed the details of the city’s After-Action report at a midday briefing on Friday.
The report also says the city should line up more generators and take other steps to handle natural disasters.
The self-analysis credits the city’s preparations and response on many fronts. But it also notes problems. Among them: Many people didn’t evacuate. People ended up staying in shelters too long. Some critically needed city vehicles couldn’t get gas.
