Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

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.
