The Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response announced its next Citizen’s Preparedness Training Program session will be held on Tuesday, May 8th starting at 7pm at the Pine Plains Community Center, located at 7775 South Main Street.

The training session is designed to provide participants with the tools and resources to better prepare for any type of disaster, such as the recent snow storms that downed trees and branches, closed roads, and heavily impacted utility infrastructure leaving thousands of Dutchess County residents without power. 

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 Town of Pine Plains. 

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. Dutchess County’s Medical Reserve Corps and the Dutchess County Animal Response Team will be present as part of the training.
