Ready School of the Year

Ready Schools is part of the Ready New York for Kids program, which launched in 2007 with the introduction of two interactive emergency preparedness guides for students. In spring 2009, NYC Emergency Management and the Department of Education introduced a pilot program to teach the lessons from Ready New York for Kids in schools. After a successful pilot program in Brooklyn, Ready Schools launched in all five boroughs at the start of the 2009/2010 school year.

Each year, the Ready New York program honors a school for their commitment to preparedness. Past winners include:
