— Orange Regional Medical Center will host the New York Citizen Preparedness Training Program, a free disaster preparedness training program, on Monday, Feb. 26.

The 90-minute session will begin at 4:30 p.m. in Conference Rooms 2 and 3 at Orange Regional’s main campus, located at 707 East Main Street in Middletown.

All interested citizens may attend and no advanced registration is required.

The event is part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's continuing Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program, which provides citizens with the knowledge and tools to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible from pre-disaster conditions.

The program is presented by New York National Guard troops, working with experts from the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services and local emergency management personnel.

The Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program covers a broad range of emergency preparedness topics, like developing a family emergency plan, stocking up on emergency supplies and registering for NY-Alert, the free statewide emergency alert system.

Following the session, participants will receive a training certificate and a wallet-sized "Z-Card" with emergency preparedness information.

“In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, the resources we frequently depend on may not be readily available. Being aptly prepared is crucial,” said John Nowinski AEMT-P, Injury Prevention Coordinator/EMS Liaison at Orange Regional Medical Center. “With severe weather events becoming increasingly common, we are thrilled to offer this free and important training event to our community.”
