Radio Roundup

There is a Citizens Preparedness Training Program workshop at 7 p.m. Wed., Sept. 24 in the Catskill High School Gymnasium, with an emphasis on radio's import in an emergency. This free training course will provide an introduction to responding to a natural or man-made disaster. Participants will be advised on how to properly prepare for any disaster, including developing a family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies. Trainers will supply information on what organizations can provide additional support; how to register for NY-Alert, the free statewide emergency alert system; and how to be aware of notifications from such sources as the Emergency Broadcast System. Register for the workshop at http://prepare.ny.gov/training-events
