Local Leaders

Red Hook Local Leaders

The Red Hook Local Leaders program launched in July 2014 with a
training series that brings together local residents to improve individual and family
preparedness and to strengthen the social resiliency of Red Hook public housing
residents. The Local Leaders training series ensures that residents living in Red
Hook gain skills in emergency response and become leaders of the response and
recovery efforts of any future emergency or disaster.

Since the creation of the program, RHI has trained 175 Local Leaders, the majority
of whom are residents of the NYCHA Red Hook Houses. Training topics include:
Ready New York, Heat and Health Preparedness, CPR/ First Aid certification,
Outreach and Organizing, Volunteer Management and Coordination, Individual and
Family Preparedness, Psychological First Aid, Coordinating with Government Agencies,
and more.
