Sam Rinaldo, a fourth-year civil engineering technology/emergency management and safety student, is part of CAST professor Jennifer Schneider’s research team developing plans for emergency preparedness. He saw firsthand how important community plans are for disaster recovery when he spent part of the fall in New York City helping residents affected by Hurricane Sandy. Rinaldo went as part of his service in the U.S. Naval Reserves and worked in lower Manhattan, one of the areas hardest hit by the hurricane, supporting residents without food, water and electricity.
