NYS Prepare

Online Citizen Preparedness Training

Welcome to Governor Cuomo’s New York State Citizen Preparedness Corps online training. This video was designed to give citizens basic information on how to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters or emergencies. Since 2010, New Yorkers across our state have experienced the devastating impact of hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, floods and blizzards. This presentation has been designed to give you knowledge of how to reduce the impact of disasters and emergencies on you, your family and your community. We hope that after taking this course, you will take advantage of the additional resources that are listed at the end of the presentation and that you put into practice what you have learned.

Your NY.GOV ID allows you to use online services from various NYS government agencies using a single Username and Password. For example, if you create a NY.GOV ID through the Department of Motor Vehicles or have used the Online Tax Center of the Department of Taxation and Finance, you can use the same NY.GOV ID Username and Password to login in and complete this training. If you do not have an NY.GOV ID click create an account to complete the training. The benefit of doing this is that you will now be able to use the ID you create to access many of the other online government services available from New York State. This will create a better online experience for you and increase your security.
