About NYC Citizen Corps

Who we are: NYC Citizen Corps is a community readiness program. Our program promotes emergency preparedness through building the capacity of nonprofit and other locally based organizations.

What we do: We collaborate with New York City local leaders to provide a direct connection to city emergency planning. Inclusive planning is at the heart of our whole community framework.

What we offer: We host trainings and events and offer tools to help build local planning capacity. We also connect New Yorkers to citywide preparedness initiatives through our weekly newsletter and volunteer network. Network access includes a variety of resources and opportunities to meet fellow community leaders throughout New York City looking to strengthen community planning in our diverse urban environment.

Build your community's capacity to prepare for and respond to emergencies.
