August 3, 2015 – New York City Emergency Management officials will visit the Bronx on Tuesday, August 4, to discuss emergency preparedness, coordination, and planning with residents. NYC Emergency Management staff members will open a mobile office at Monsignor Del Valle Square in Hunts Point from 11 AM to 3 PM, and will give residents the opportunity to learn more about the agency’s role in educating and preparing New Yorkers for emergencies. Emergency managers will also distribute information about Legionnaires' disease.
In addition to the Bronx, NYC Emergency Management will have a mobile office at Red Hook Library in Brooklyn on Thursday, August 6, from 11 AM to 3 PM.
"NYC Emergency Management works tirelessly every day to keep New Yorkers safe and informed," said NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Esposito. "Our mobile office hours are a new way for New Yorkers to meet and get to know the emergency managers coordinating emergency responses in New York City."
NYC Emergency Management staff members will be on hand to distribute a range of emergency preparedness materials. New Yorkers are encouraged to stop by to learn how to be prepared for any emergency, including steps to make a plan, gather supplies, and stay informed. Residents will also learn how they can join New York City Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), a program consisting of more than 2,000 volunteers dedicated to helping their communities during emergencies.
