MOHAWK – Members of the local community who are interested in learning about disaster preparedness will soon have the chance to take a free class in Mohawk.

The free, two-hour Emergency Preparedness Training class will be held at the German Flatts Town Park, located at 555 State Route 5S in Mohawk, at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 31.

The class is being presented by New York National Guard troops and the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. It will cover topics such as developing a family emergency plan, stocking up on emergency supplies, man-made emergencies such as an active shooter and active violence, and signing up for NY-Alert, the statewide emergency alert system.

Attendees will also receive a free emergency preparedness starter kit, which includes a first-aid kit, a face mask, a pocket radio with batteries, food bars, emergency blanket and other items. They will be limited to one per family. Attendees will also get a training certificate and a wallet-sized “Z-Card” with emergency preparedness information.

The class, which is being held in locations throughout the state, is part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program. It’s meant to provide New Yorkers with the knowledge and tools to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible.
