The newest course offered is MYN which is a ninety minute class organizing neighborhoods to respond in the first hour of a disaster when lives can be saved by quick action. Courses are taught in your neighborhood and we supply the trainer and materials.
Since this program was launched in June of 2007, more than 700 citizens have been trained and know what to do immediately to assist their neighbors.
