A Citizen Preparedness training seminar will be hosted by Orange County on Wednesday, December 14th. The seminar is open to the public and will be held at Orange County’s Emergency Services Center at 22 Wells Farm Road in Goshen starting at 6:30 PM. Presenters will include members from Orange County’s Division of Emergency Management and will offer tips on responding to natural or man-made disasters and answer attendee questions. There will be a focus on home preparation with advice to ensure that smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers are all properly located and working properly.
Trainers will provide information on what organizations offer additional support, how to register for NY-Alert, the free statewide emergency alert system, and how to be aware of notifications from such sources as the Emergency Broadcast System.
Attendees will be advised on how to prepare for any disaster, including developing a family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies, and will receive a complimentary Citizen Preparedness Corps Response Starter Kit including a first aid kit, batteries, blanket and more important emergency supplies.
“This training provides Orange County residents with an opportunity to learn how to protect themselves and their families in the event of an emergency,” Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus said. “Orange County has comprehensive plans designed to protect our residents, but there are also things that they can do to remain safe in the event of an emergency such as a flood, hurricane or snowstorm. We appreciate Governor Cuomo’s office, Senator Bonacic’s office, the New York National Guard and Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services for collaborating with the County on this important and informative seminar.”
The seminar is sponsored by Governor Cuomo’s office in conjunction with State Senator John Bonacic, the New York National Guard and New York State’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services.
All participants must register in advance for the seminar at www.prepare.ny.gov.
