(WBNG Binghamton) Participants must register online for the NYS Disaster Preparedness training program to be held in Owego this Saturday, May 10.

It will be held at the Owego Free Academy High School Auditorium at 11:00 a.m. Similar trainings were held in Ithaca and Vestal in March.

The program seeks to provide citizens with the tools and resources to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions.

Each family that attends will receive a NYS Disaster Preparedness Kit that contains key items to assist individuals in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. The state training and kits will help New Yorkers be the most-trained and best-prepared citizens in the country.

To register for the training, click here. Click on the Register box next to the Owego Free Academy event listed and fill out the short registration form.  At the end of the form choose the Tioga location from the drop down.
