In partnership with New York State, the Red Cross is providing free emergency preparedness training entitled: Prepare, Respond, Recover: What to do When Disaster Strikes.
The training gives a comprehensive overview on how to prepare for natural and man-made disasters and how to respond to and recover from them. The training also provides information on types of common disasters, ways to prepare as an individual, family and community member, what to do when disaster strikes and what actions you can take afterwards to aid in your recovery.
The training is available both in-person for groups, organizations and community events; or on-line for individuals.
