Message from the LBA President
Happy new year. 2020 was a difficult year for many Americans. It was a year of unprecedented strife and a crippling worldwide pandemic. The Port Authority has been negatively impacted by both problems and as always, the Lieutenants of this department led the way.
The LBA has been working with the Port Authority to obtain vaccines for our members and I encourage all, after consultation with their physicians to receive them. The Javits Center will be allotting 25 vaccines per day for Port Authority employees and there will be a vaccine program for 110 inoculations at JFK. Chief Silva will be coordinating the program and Lieutenant Rakas will be Headquarters the point of contact and I will be working with him. Contact your Commanding Officer to obtain the form to receive the vaccine.
As operational conditions change, the Port Authority will be issuing updates. Continue to monitor your department emails and notify a board member if you experience any difficulties.
As always, thank you for your continued professionalism and leadership.
