Please note the new meeting location:
First Reformed Church, North Church Street, Schenectady (in the Poling Chapel)
Directions: The church parking lot is on North Church Street, on your left as you head north from Union Street. Cross North Church Street and find the walkway between number 10 and 12 North Church. Go to the end of the walkway and enter the building. Turn left and go through the double doors. Turn right and walk past the rest rooms. The Poling Chapel is just down the hall. We will meet in the Poling Chapel. There are no stairs and everything appears to be handicap accessible.
If the church parking lot is full, there are two more parking lots on the corner of Union and North Church.
Jim Silva will arrive early, and will be looking for SARA members that may need help finding the meeting location. There is also a parking lot at the southeast corner of Union and Church streets.
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
