Lakewood Chaveirim is mobilizing and gearing up for the impending storm, but are already getting swamped with unnecessary calls. Chaveirim says calls such as requesting weather updates etc. are unnecessary and just tie up the members as well as the lines.
Chaveirim also says that generators are for emergency situations only, and should not be requested for regular blackouts during the storm
“We should not be your plan A”, a Chaveirim coordinator tells TLS. “During the storm, we’re here for emergencies only.”
Chaveirim generators are used for elderly patients and patients using emergency equipment such as ventilators. Chaveirim says they will also be utilizing some of Bikur Cholim’s generators and services during the storm.
Additionally, Chaveirim says that “If you’re told not to leave your home, don’t”, and don’t attempt to drive in dangerous weather conditions. Your vehicle can get stuck, further tying up Chaveirim members. TLS.
