The Citizen Preparedness Corps training program was developed in 2014 by the New York Division of Homeland Security to provide residents tools and resources to be ready for any type of disaster or emergency, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible.

The trainings are led by members of the N.Y. National Guard working with experts from the Division's Office of Emergency Management and Office of Fire Prevention and Control.

The course provides an introduction on how to respond to a natural or human-caused disaster. Topics include signing up for emergency alert notifications, developing family emergency plans and stocking up on emergency supplies.

Each family that participates will be provided a free NYS Disaster Preparedness Kits with examples of key items that will be useful in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.

Advanced registration is required to participate in the training course. To register, visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DFGRC42524
