Local PBA Officials Assist State PBA In Post-Sandy Operations In Seaside Heights And Toms River

PHOTOS: When off duty as Lakewood Police Officers, Lakewood P.B.A President Gary Przewoznik and State Delegate Steve Kelusak are volunteering their free time assisting the New Jersey State P.B.A. in post-Sandy emergency operations in Seaside Heights and in Toms River.

Since Sandy devastated the borough, the New Jersey State P.B.A. has been set up on the Island at Seaside Heights with a full-fledged food tent for the First Responders at the Route 37 Command Center. 

The food tent was organized by Operations Director Ed Weimer from the Ocean County Corrections Department just after Sandy hit, and has been run by Weimer since – without missing a day, a P.B.A. official says.

Assisting Weimer in the food tent operation for several weeks now, is Lakewood P.B.A. President Gary Przewoznik. But instead of taking credit for his efforts, the P.B.A. head was thanking the others.

“I want to thank everyone that has continued to support the efforts to restore our great State of New Jersey”, Przewoznik told TLS.

The Ocean County Conference has also set up a P.B.A. store in the Indian Head Plaza in Toms River to help all Emergency Personnel directly affected by the storms. The ‘store’, provides the Emergency Personnel with free items such as canned goods, cleaning supplies, clothing, household items and anything else they may need during the cleanup process.

Lakewood P.B.A. State Delegate Steve Kelusak the last few weeks has been assisting that operation with fellow Officers Chris Ebert, State Delegate from Barnaget PD, and Artie Cronk, State Delegate from Manchester PD.

“The store is there to help all those First Responders that have lost every thing and were still out servicing the communities, putting their own lives on hold to help others”, Kelusak says.

The devastation on the Shore is still many months away from ‘back to normal’, but says Przewoznik, “We will all get through this together.” TLS.
