Disaster Service & Preparedness Training/Ready CNY

Disasters strip innocent people of their essential needs, including food, clothing, shelter, and comfort. In order to better prepare our community, the American Red Cross’s Disaster Services and Preparedness Training will address all aspects of the disaster cycle by: 1) educating citizens and organizations on preemptive measures that can be taken to alleviate the effects of disaster; 2) creating new preparedness programs; 3) continuing to provide immediate, direct assistance for victims of disaster; and 4) engaging government, community response personnel, and non-profit agencies to ensure an coordinated effort to respond to a disaster.
