New York National Guard launches citizens emergency training program

New York Army National Guard Capt. Victoria Depaulis teaches a disaster and emergency preparedness class at the launch of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program here on Feb. 1. New York National Guard troops gave disaster and emergency training to more than 1,200 people who attended events at New Dorp High School here and in Suffolk County. The program is designed to give citizens the knowledge and tools to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. New York National Guard troops, working with experts from the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, Office of Fire Prevention and Control, and local emergency management personnel will conduct future training sessions with the goal of teaching approximately 100,000 New Yorkers during 2014. Depaulis belongs to the 501st Explosive Ordnance Battalion. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. 1st Class Raymond Drumsta, Joint Force Headquarters, New York Army National Guard).
