With severe weather events becoming more frequent and more extreme, it is more important than ever that New Yorkers are prepared for disasters. A NY Citizen Preparedness Training Program will be held on Monday, June 12 at 7 p.m. at the JCC of Syracuse, 5655 Thompson Rd., Dewitt.

The class is free and open to the public. Registration is requested by contacting Erin Hart at 315-445-2360 or

The NY Citizen Preparedness Training Program teaches residents to have the tools and resources to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. The training course will provide an introduction to responding to a natural or man-made disaster. Participants will be advised on how to properly prepare for any disaster, including developing a family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies.

This training is being conducted by the New York State Citizen Preparedness Corps. The Citizen Preparedness Corps training began in February 2014 and is held at armories and other locations, such as the State Fair. Trainings are led by the New York National Guard, working with experts from the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services’ Office of Emergency Management and Office of Fire Prevention and Control. All training sessions are coordinated with local county emergency management personnel.
