The Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response hosts free Citizens Preparedness Training sessions at various locations around Dutchess County throughout the year.
The events are open to the public and designed to provide participants with the tools and resources to better prepare for any type of disaster.
At each training, participants will learn how to respond accordingly in a disaster and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. Each family will receive a free Citizen Preparedness Corp Response Starter Kit.
Dutchess County’s Medical Reserve Corps and the Dutchess County Animal Response Team will be present with more information on how to become involved.
