Disaster Preparedness seminar tomorrow evening (01/23), 7pm, at Verona Comm Ctr.
In an effort to increase awareness of our citizenry concerning the impact of natural, manmade, and technological disasters, the Verona, Cedar Grove, Essex Fells & North Caldwell police departments will again be hosting the Community College Citizen Preparedness Program (3CP2).
The event will be held at the Verona Community Center, 880 Bloomfield Ave. Verona, NJ, from 7:00pm - 9:00pm on Wednesday, January 23, 2013.
The training session is provided at no cost to the attendees and consists of two hours of instruction on threat awareness and assessment; sheltering and evacuation; and recovery and resources. This training is open to all residents and their families, businesses, community organizations, civic groups and anyone else interested in becoming better prepared during a disaster.
Given the recent weather events, how many of us prepared a “jump bag” or “go kit” that was at the ready if we needed to evacuate our home? Did we know what to bring with us, and, perhaps equally important, what to leave behind?
• This training will teach participants how to identify threats that affect you, your family, and community.
• Participants will be better prepared to function for 72 hours during a disaster without first responder assistance by being able to access and share appropriate information and training.
This program is made possible through the cooperation of the Essex County College Police Academy.
