On June 10, an Emergency Preparedness Expo was put on by the University Settlement Adult Literacy Program students in the New York Rising advanced ESOL class, which is taught by Lynne Hayden-Findlay. New York Rising students have been studying very hard and they put together presentations about how to protect yourself and your family during a natural disaster and other emergencies. Their presentations will included: how to call 911, collecting emergency supplies to keep in your home, drought and water conservation, making an emergency plan, how to put together a “go-bag” and why, protecting yourself against the flu, staying safe during a thunder and lightning storm, staying safe during a tornado, staying safe during a severe snowstorm, surviving an active shooter event at work, and what to do during a school evacuation.
