In a global business capital like New York City, it is important that businesses prepare for emergencies. Loss of business due to a local disaster affects economies well beyond the five boroughs.

While many large companies have in-house emergency planners and business continuity professionals, many of the 200,000 small business owners in New York City cannot afford a disaster planning staff. Nevertheless, OEM's Public/Private Initiatives Unit offers several programs to help businesses of all sizes prepare for and recover from emergencies.

In addition to managing these programs, OEM's Public/Private Initiatives Unit coordinates the exchange of information between the City and the private sector and works to include the private sector in the City's emergency plans. Contact the unit here.
