STATEN ISLAND N.Y. -- New York Army National Guard Soldier 1st Lt. Alexandria Wiedenbaum (right) checks a resident into a session of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program at Immanuel Union Church here on Sept. 14. The church event is 1,000th session of the program troops like Wiedenbaum have held since the program began in February 2014. The program provides citizens with the knowledge and tools to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. New York National Guard troops have been working with the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES) and local emergency management personnel to conduct these training events state-wide.
