NYC Emergency Management is branching out and sharing information with New Yorkers in more ways than ever before. During an emergency, the agency works with partners to provide a unified, accurate, and timely message to the public. NYC Emergency Management delivers emergency alerts and updates to New Yorkers through the following channels:

  • Notify NYC, the City of New York's official source for information about emergency events and important City services. Registration is free.
  • Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), a free emergency notification service that allows authorized government officials to send geographically targeted emergency alerts to enabled mobile devices on wireless networks. Learn more about WEA
  • Broadcast media using the City's emergency public communication systems
  • Email alerts to subscribers:
    • CorpNet provides business partners with current, accurate information about emergencies to enhance awareness and aid decision making, should their businesses be affected. (If you or your business can help NYC Emergency Management keep New Yorkers informed about emergencies in New York City, please contact the agency's Public/Private Initiatives Unit.)
    • Citizen Corps Communications Network is a weekly newsletter that includes information about preparedness initiatives, resources and local events. During emergencies, the Communications Network is also used to disseminate important alerts and updates.
    • Advance Warning System, provides emergency alerts and information to organizations that serve people with people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs, and is managed by the New York City Emergency Management Department in partnership with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the New York City Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities.
