With severe weather events becoming more frequent and more extreme, it is more important than ever that New Yorkers are prepared for disasters. Remember the macroburst storms that came through the area last year? How can we forget! The NY Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program teaches residents to have the tools and resources ready to go, to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible to get back to pre-disaster conditions. The City of Beacon will be hosting a Citizen Preparedness Training Class on Thursday, August 8, 2019 at 6:30 pm.
The class will cover training for natural and human-made disasters, and will include active shooter training. Participants will be advised on how to properly prepare for any disaster, including developing a family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies.
Training will take place at the Lewis Tompkins Hose, 13 South Avenue in Beacon. To RSVP, contact Collin Milone at (845) 838-5010 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about this training and other training events, visit prepare.ny.gov/.
