The Baltimore County Fire Department this fall will conduct two sessions of its five-week emergency preparedness program for citizens.

"Neighbors Helping Neighbors" is a multi-section, all-hazards program that includes interactive lectures and practical instruction. The program is designed to help citizens learn how to help their families and communities get through the first 72 hours following disasters such as tropical storms, blizzards and extended water and power outages.

Experts from local public safety agencies will conduct the training. Topics include natural and technological disasters, fire safety, crime prevention, CPR and first aid, and community preparedness.

Participants are expected to attend a two-hour session once a week for five consecutive weeks. All classes are held on Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m.

One session begins September 9 at the Providence VFC in Towson. The second session begins October 14 at the Pikesville VFC.
