The American Red Cross has a mission of making sure our communities are ready and prepared for disasters. Governor Cuomo’s Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program provides residents with the knowledge and tools to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. Since New York is at high risk for man-made, technological and natural disasters, the American Red Cross is presenting the Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program throughout New York State encouraging people to be better prepared.
