Disability Pride Parade

NYC Emergency Management offers several ways to involve communities and businesses in emergency planning and preparedness:

  • NYC Community Emergency Response Teams (NYC CERT) are groups of community-based volunteers trained in disaster preparedness and emergency response.
  • NYC Citizen Corps brings together leaders from volunteer programs, community and nonprofit organizations, the private sector, and government to promote preparedness at the local level.
  • Private sector programs, including Partners in Preparedness, work to increase the NYC business community's preparedness level.
