Citizen Preparedness Corps logoCitizen Preparedness Corps is a free New York State training program created by Gov. Cuomo after Hurricane Sandy. The program works to provide community resiliency for individuals and households by teaching valuable life skills on how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural or man-made disasters.

Macedon Public Library is pleased to host this training program, which covers different kinds of disasters that might occur in NYS and teaches vital skills like where to get more information in the case of an emergency and how to prepare a household emergency preparedness kit. You’ll also learn about citizen CPR, a basic, hands-only form of CPR.

The training is suitable for those from high school age to senior citizens, and is free. The life skills learned are valuable to everyone. Presenters are Red Cross staffers, as the Red Cross is partnering with NYS in bringing this program to the public.

For more information about the training, email the Preparedness Team at meghan.crowley2@redcross.org. To register for the training, call the library at 315-986-5932, or stop in and sign up in person. This will be a popular program, so don’t wait!
