You can never be too prepared. And it the world we live in you just never know.

This week on Wednesday March 22nd the Sauguerties Police department, along with sponsors Town Supervisor Greg Helsmoortel and Town Councilmen Fred Costello,  will hold a citizens preparedness training course. This is a free event for the public which is meant to prepare community members in an event that disaster strikes the New York area. The New York The NY Citizen Preparedness Training Program prepared residents with knowledge about tools and resources they could use in case of an emergency. If you are participating in the event you will learn how to respond to natural and man-made disasters, as well as "developing a family emergency plan."
