The Homeland Security Management Institute (HSMI) of Monroe Community College is offering a two-hour free training course entitled “Citizen Preparedness Program”.
Extreme events – droughts, wildfires, tornados, floods, heat waves, fierce storms and blizzards. Yet, the great majority of our citizens are not prepared to respond to natural disasters, man-made threats, or pandemic events.
Help Citizens Preserve Life & Minimize Injuries
The Citizen Preparedness Program is being offered with the goal of helping citizens preserve life and minimize injuries sustained in a disaster. The course is intended to train citizens on how to protect themselves and their families by knowing what to do before, during and after a disaster event.
Before an Event:
- Know the risks and danger signs
- Develop plans for what to do
- Assemble a disaster kit
During an Event:
- Put a plan in action
- Help others
- Follow the advice and guidance of officials
After an Event:
- Have knowledge of disaster recovery measures
- Be alert for dangerous or hazardous conditions
