Legislator Drucker Partners with NYS, POB Senior Club to Host Emergency Preparedness Workshop

(PLAINVIEW, N.Y.) – More than 120 seniors came to the Jamaica Avenue School in Plainview on Friday, Oct. 6 for a New York State Emergency Preparedness Workshop County hosted by Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D - Plainview), New York State, and the Plainview-Old Bethpage Senior Citizen Club.
Presented by the State’s Citizens Preparedness Corps, the workshops equip residents with the tools and resources to prepare for any type of natural or man-made disaster, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions – especially as severe weather events become more frequent and more extreme. Each family participating received a free Citizen Preparedness Corps Response Starter Kit, containing a radio, flashlight, batteries, freshwater packets, food packs, heavy-duty gloves, tarp, emergency blanket, water container, glow stick, whistle, and an emergency preparedness booklet.
“In Nassau County and across our nation, we are continuously being confronted with stronger and more frequent storms because of climate change. That is why workshops like the ones presented by the Citizens Preparedness Corps are so vitally important,” Legislator Drucker said. “Thank you to New York State, Plainview-Old Bethpage Senior Citizen Club President Lori Charletta, Community Service Coordinator Cheryl Dender, and Jean Johnson and Edwin Matteo from the National Guard for presenting such an informative program that prepared our residents for the unexpected and gave them additional peace of mind.”
