Notable Notes 17: Disaster Preparedness by the State of New York!

Indeed! Would you –ever- expect New Yorkers to try themselves in Disaster Preparedness?

From the news headlines:

Governor Andrew Cuomo launched a training program on Saturday in order to make sure New Yorkers are better prepared for severe weather.

The Citizen Preparedness Corps program hopes to train around 100,000 people on how to react quickly and safely to emergencies and disasters in the state.

A key component of this training is the distribution of New York State Citizen Preparedness Corps Response Kits that contain key items to assist individuals in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.


And while the kit is nothing to brag about, it is a start, an incentive, to build something better on it.

Of note is that the National Guard will be conducting the training.

This is good news, and right from where they were least expected.
