“Today's closing is in accordance with the Federation's business continuity and disaster recovery plan. Also under that plan, our stationed Federation staff will be able to answer phone calls at their respective extensions. New York City-based staff who are equipped and have power will be working remotely and responding to member inquiries via email,” the National Federation added.
