Workshop trains New Yorkers to prepare for disasters

A workshop on citizen preparedness was developed by the Office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo to create a resilient and prepared New York for high-risk disasters. The presentation is being held at the Howland Public Library from 2 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 14, and will give a comprehensive overview on how to prepare for natural disasters and man-made disasters. A representative of the American Red Cross of Northeastern New York will lead the training session.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will receive a certificate signed by the governor, a safety card and information on building a disaster kit at home.
