Guard Conducts Preparedness Training in Bethpage

BETHPAGE, NY -- New York Air National Guard 1st Lt. Robert McCoy fields questions after teaching a disaster and emergency preparedness class during a session of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's Citizen Preparedness Corps Training Program at Bethpage High School here on Feb. 22. New York National Guard troops gave disaster and emergency training to about 575 people who attended the event. The program is designed to give citizens 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, working with experts from the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, Office of Fire Prevention and Control, and local emergency management personnel will conduct future training sessions with the goal of teaching approximately 100,000 New Yorkers during 2014. McCoy, of New York City, belongs to the 106th Rescue Wing.
