Emergency management vehicles

OCME is an active participant in New York City's Disaster Response system, planning for and responding to disasters of all types. We maintain a team of specially trained experts to respond to any and all fatality events, no matter what hazards may be encountered during recovery.

OCME works with the 311 System, NYPD, and NYC's Office of Emergency Management to provide rapid assistance to family members, take reports of missing persons, investigate incidents, gather information for identifications, and disseminate information to other agencies.
