Poughkeepsie, NY…With the recent natural disasters in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and elsewhere, now, more than ever, it is important to prepare yourself and your loved ones in the event of an emergency. The Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response will host its next Citizen Preparedness Training Program session on Thursday, October 26th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Stanford Town Hall, located at 26 Town Hall Road in the Town of Stanford. The two-hour training session is designed to provide participants with the tools and resources to better prepare for any type of disaster.

The training program is being provided by the Dutchess County Departments of Emergency Response and Behavioral and Community Health. The event is open to the public and free to attend. Doors to the event will open at 6:30 p.m. Each family will receive a free Citizen Preparedness Starter Kit.
