Hoboken residents to create back-up wifi

According to NJBIZ Magazine a group of volunteer etch-savvy Hoboken residents are creating back-up wifi network in the case of another emergency like Sandy, "We have to fix this problem ourselves so that our community is prepared for the next big crisis." The project, MileMesh.com, was founded with only $3,000 of startup money.  

What steps has your city take to prepare for another "Sandy"?
