Be Prepared. Take NY State’s Citizen Preparedness Course
New York’s popular, free Citizen Preparedness Corps training course is now available online with subtitles in Bengali, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Yiddish. The 24-minute online training course covers a wide range of important safety and preparedness topics, as well as provides New Yorkers with the guidance they need to prepare for natural or human-caused disasters.
The course covers three main areas: preparing your plan, you are a first responder, and recovery is a process. For example, citizens will learn about the four types of hazards in New York State – natural, human-caused, technological and biological – that could affect them, how to develop a family emergency plan, and how to recover from a catastrophic event.
All citizens who complete the online course receive a certificate upon completion. More information is available at https://prepare.ny.gov/online-citizen-preparedness-training
