From “Community Viewpoint” South Shore Press:
On Monday, June 19th at 6:30pm, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker will host a FREE Emergency Preparedness Training at the Longwood Public Library (800 Middle Country Road, Middle Island).
The program will give residents of all ages the tools and resources they need to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible. Free Emergency Starter Kits will be given to each household upon successful completion of the training.
“As we begin to enter hurricane season, it is important that all residents are prepared for different types of storms and emergency situations,” said Legislator Anker. “I encourage residents to participate in this emergency training program to learn how to respond accordingly to a multitude of situations.”
All participants must register in advance. You can register online by visiting http://www.prepare.ny.gov and clicking “Training Events” or you can call Legislator Anker’s office at 631-854-1600.
