Shoreham, NY - November 10, 2016 - On Wednesday, November 16th at 6:30pm Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker and the Shoreham Civic Organization will host a Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program. The program is free to all residents and will take place in the activities room of the North Shore Public Library (250 Route 25A, Shoreham).
The Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program is offered through New York State and is a two hour training session to give residents of all ages the tools and resources to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. Light refreshment will be served and each family participating in the training will receive a free Citizen Preparedness Corps Response Starter Kit.
“As we begin to leave hurricane season and approach the winter months, it is important that all residents are prepared for different types of storms and emergency situations,” said Legislator Anker. “I encourage residents to participate in the Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program to learn how to respond accordingly to a multitude of situations.”
All residents must register for the training in advance. You can register online by visiting www.prepare.ny.gov and clicking “Training Events” or you can call Legislator Anker’s office at 631-854-1600.
