Please save our shores! Without protecting Fire Island you are not protecting Long Island! It has taken too long for a response, and New Jersey is already getting assistance...Please wait no more! It's not just about second homes and vacations...There are people who live here year round and businesses that depend on the summer visitors! Not to say that our shore line is a wonder and needs protecting more than ever!

Hurricane Sandy nearly leveled the cross-section profile of Fire Island. It is now essentially flat. And while a healthy dune system does afford protection to hundreds of homes on Fire Island, the really critical benefit is to tens of thousands of homes (and 200,000 voters!) who live on the Long Island shore of Great South Bay. Without a robust system of dunes on Fire Island, the next big storm (even just a Nor' Easter) will roll right over it and directly hit two dozen heavily populated...

Without a robust system of dunes on Fire Island, the next big storm (even just a Nor' Easter) will roll right over it and directly hit two dozen heavily populated Long Island communities. I believe it's critical that the dunes be rebuilt to a size greater than what was there before Sandy, regardless of where the sand is sourced. Dredging Fire Island Inlet will provide much needed sand for the western end of the island, but ocean dredging will also been needed for the middle and eastern end. The entire dune system must be restored, end-to-end. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
