Peninsula Hospital Center Auxiliary Hosts Training Seminar
The Peninsula Hospital Center Auxiliary will be sponsoring a "Prepare New York With Training" Seminar on Tuesday, April 3 as part of its regularly scheduled monthly meeting and everyone is invited to attend. Anne F. Levine and Sheila Schwartz, co-presidents of the Auxiliary, are inviting the general public to participate in an informative and potentially life-saving presentation by the American Red Cross of Greater New York, with guest speaker Dennis Shipman, Coordinator of Community Outreach and Preparedness.
The American Red Cross-sponsored training presentation prepares the community (in the wake of the Flight #587 crash in Belle Harbor, the tragedy of September 11 in NYC and the ever-present possibility of a hurricane or Nor'Easter) with the skills - some of which are quite simple - needed to survive an emergency situation.
Citizens need to know how to prepare for either an emergency or a disaster. The one hour presentation which the American Red Cross of Greater New York City has developed in collaboration with NYC Office of Emergency Management, provides practical tools people can use to survive in either an emergency or a disaster until they are able to make it to a safe haven.
The Peninsula Auxiliary encourages everyone who has questions about what to do in the event of an emergency situation to attend this important meeting, set for 12 noon in the Meditation Room of the Peninsula Center for Extended Care and Rehabilitation, located directly adjacent to Peninsula Hospital Center, 51-15 Beach Channel Drive, Far Rockaway. Lunch will be available.
