Nov. 28 event to teach disaster preparedness
New York National Guard troops, in conjunction with the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, will present a free disaster preparedness class Nov. 28 at Tannersville’s Mountain Top Library.
The two-hour program begins at 6 p.m. The library is at 6093 Main St.
The event is part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s “Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program,” which provides people with the knowledge and tools to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible.
Working with the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services and local emergency management personnel, National Guard members are conducting these training events across the state.
Since the program’s launch in February 2014, Guard members have held more than 1,100 events statewide and taught over 82,000 people.
