POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- The Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response in partnership with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's office, will hold a Citizen’s Preparedness Corps Training Program on Tuesday, April 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Rochdale Firehouse, 1075 Dutchess Turnpike in the Town of Poughkeepsie.

The two-hour training session is designed to provide participants with the tools and resources to better prepare for any type of disaster. Participants will learn how to respond accordingly in a disaster and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions.

The training program is being provided by the state Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services in conjunction with the state Division of Military and Naval Affairs. The event is open to the public and free to attend; however, pre-registration is required. Doors to the event will open at 6:30 p.m. Each family will receive a free Citizen Preparedness Corps Response Starter Kit.

This training session is part of the Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response’s citizen preparedness training initiative which is being offered regionally throughout Dutchess County in 2016. Dutchess County’s Medical Reserve Corps and the Dutchess County Animal Response Team will be present as part of the training.
