Emergencies affect every community differently, but you can help your community be prepared and resilient.
You can also become a volunteer.
Help your community become more resilient! Learn about how New York City plans for hazards and how your community can create its own emergency plan.
Examples of other community emergency planning efforts
This toolkit is designed to be a group process. You define your own community — successful planning has been done by housing developments, congregations, neighborhoods, etc. Examples of groups that could use the toolkit include:
Community emergency networks help local communities share information during all phases of emergencies. They also help identify community needs and gaps in services and offer a structure for community based emergency planning. Through communication, partnerships and education, these networks can be a powerful resource in your community.
