Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness for People with Disabilities

The Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD) is committed to the principles of inclusive emergency management and a whole community approach to preparing, responding, recovering and mitigating emergencies and disasters.

MOPD supports the coordination of many of the City’s efforts to provide programs and services during emergencies that are accessible to all New Yorkers. MOPD does this by working closely with New York City Emergency Management (NYCEM), other City agencies, members of the disability community, organizations and service providers.
