We see and hear about disasters here in the United States and around the world on a regular basis. We have seen pictures and heard stories of families trying to find missing relatives, people stranded, communities leveled by storms or fires. What if it happened to you, in your neighborhood. Would you know what to do or what not to do?
The Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response, in partnership with the Town of Dover, will hold a Citizen's Preparedness Training course on Monday, September 23 at the Dover Town Hall with registration starting at 11 am and the program beginning around 11:30 am. This course is free and open to the public.
You’ll learn the best way to respond in a disaster and how to recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. Dutchess County’s Medical Reserve Corps and the Dutchess County Animal Response Team will also be on hand with additional information. Each family will also receive a free Citizen’s Preparedness Response Starter Kit.
For more information, call 845-486-2080.
