Ready New York

NYC Energency Management staff member hands New Yorker a Ready NY bag.

Ready New York is NYC Emergency Management's public education campaign. Through the program, you can learn about the hazards you may face in New York City and prepare for all types of emergencies by writing an emergency plan, choosing a meeting place, gathering supplies for your home, and preparing a Go Bag in case you need to leave your home in a hurry.

NYC Emergency Management can send knowledgeable staff members and NYC CERT volunteers to educate your community about preparing for emergencies. You also can request presentations and materials in other languages. Use this form to request an event in your workplace, school, community center, or house of worship.
