Citizen Emergency Preparedness Training Session
New York State Citizen Preparedness Corps
When disaster strikes (think hurricanes Irene, Sandy…), what do we do? Where do we go? How can we help? Each family and individual needs to have a plan.
Two representatives from the NY State Citizen Preparedness Corps will present information to give us the tools and resources needed to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions.
With severe weather events becoming more frequent and more extreme, it is more important than ever that New Yorkers are prepared for disasters.
The NY Citizen Preparedness Training Program teaches residents to have the tools and resources to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions.
The training course will provide an introduction to responding to a natural or man-made disaster. Participants will be advised on how to properly prepare for any disaster, including developing a family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies
