On Wednesday, April 16, at 6:00 P.M., Governor Cuomo is sponsoring a Citizen Preparedness Training in our Senate District at the Fulton Center Auditorium, 119 Ninth Avenue (between 17th and 18th Street). I’m pleased to be co-sponsoring this important event along with Borough President Gale Brewer, Assembly Member Richard Gottfried, Council Member Corey Johnson and Community Board 4.
Through the Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program, approximately 100,000 New Yorkers will be provided with the tools and resources to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions.
Each household that participates will receive a free Citizen Preparedness Corps Response Starter Kit, which includes a plastic drop cloth, light stick, regular flashlight, first aid kit and more. All participants must register in advance at: www.prepare.ny.gov. If you have any questions, please contact Governor Cuomo’s Special Assistant for Community Affairs, Erik Bottcher, at (212) 681-4605 or call me at (212) 633-8052.
