Presenting the Final 2014 New York City Hazard Mitigation Plan
The New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM), in partnership with the Department of City Planning (DCP), is pleased to announce the official adoption of the 2014 New York City Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). The preparation of the HMP demonstrates New York City’s continued commitment to understanding our risk from a range of hazards, and identifying strategies to reduce the effects of these hazards on New York City's environment. The 2014 HMP serves as an update to the 2009 New York City Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The HMP was approved by New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (NYS DHSES), FEMA and adoption by Mayor de Blasio. The HMP is effective April 17, 2014 through April 17, 2019.
The Hazard Mitigation Unit continues to identify different ways to support and augment hazard mitigation planning. For questions or comments on the 2014 HMP, contact the team via the contact form here.
