Exeter’s emergency preparedness Stefan Coutoulakis is crediting the lessons of Tropical Storm Irene with his community’s willingness to thoroughly prepare for Hurricane Sandy.
“There was heightened awareness,” he says. “Irene brought it to light. Nobody knew how to prepare or what to be aware of.” For this storm, as Coutoulakis constantly updated residents of Sandy’s approach and directed them to the availability of local services, residents seemed to follow his recommendations.
