With severe weather events becoming more frequent and more extreme, it’s more important than ever that New Yorkers are prepared for disasters. The NY Citizen Preparedness Training Program teaches residents to have the tools and resources to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions.

The 1 1/2-hour training course led by the New York National Guard will provide an introduction to responding to different types of disasters and “active shooter/active violence.” Participants will be advised on how to properly prepare for any disaster, including developing a family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies.

Local author and web designer Scott Dawson presents his new book “The Art of Working Remotely,” on Sept. 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. If you work from home, a coworking space or coffee shop, this book is for you.
