NYS Citizen Preparedness Training
September 2019 (Exact Date and Time TBD)
Schimmel Center

New York State is offering 2-hour training courses for 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. A key component to the training is the distribution of free NYS Disaster Preparedness Kits to each attendee. 


Safety Trainings:

Emergency Preparedness & Active Shooter

This training will go over emergency procedures for various hazards, including fire (as well as evacuation procedures), medical emergency, power outage, hazardous materials spill, natural disaster, suspicious person, and suspicious package. Participants will also examine best practices and lessons learned from previous active shooter incidents in the country. Because most incidents are over within minutes, students, faculty, and staff must be prepared to deal with the situation until first responders arrive. Participants will learn recommended response tactics from the NYPD, as well as steps that can be taken immediately to protect oneself.
