The Ready New York campaign encourages New Yorkers to be ready for all types of emergencies. Develop a disaster plan and decide where you and your family will meet in the event of an emergency. Gather emergency supplies — some to keep in your home and others to keep in backpacks in case you must leave your home in a hurry. Finally, learn how to keep informed about the hazards you may face in New York City.
Ready New York PSAs Since 2009, NYC Emergency Management has worked with the Ad Council to help New Yorkers prepare for emergencies. These public service advertisements (PSAs) focus on the idea that it is up to you to make a plan for you and your family. View Ready New York PSAs
