Partners in Preparedness

partners in preparedness

Each month, we feature a partner who has done outstanding work to prepare their organization, staff, services, and facilities for emergencies.

Know Your Zone
OEM recently launched the "Know Your Zone" hurricane awareness campaign, which encourages New York City residents and businesses to find out whether they reside in one of the City's six hurricane evacuation zones, which were revised in 2013.

The Partners in Preparedness program encourages organizations to develop and maintain their continuity plans through a variety of activities. With hurricane season under way, it's important for organizations to be prepared for hurricanes and coastal storms. As part of the Know Your Zone efforts, Partners in Preparedness encourages all organizations to include the following steps in their emergency plans:
  • Send an email to your staff encouraging them to know what hurricane evacuation zone they live in. Remember: employees who are prepared at home are more likely to be able to help when an emergency occurs.
  • Download the Know Your Zone badge and display it on your organization's website, social media channel, or in an email signature.
  • Put your organization's preparedness on display: request a Know Your Zone window sticker that can be displayed in your place of business.
