At this training, 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 Dutchess County Departments of Emergency Response and the City of Beacon. 

The event is open to the public and free to attend. Doors to the event will open at 6:30pm. Each family will receive a free Citizen Preparedness Corp 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 2018. The next in the series will be held Tuesday, May 8 at the Pine Plains Town Hall, located at 3284 State Route 199.
