Preparedness & Response


September 6, 2022


Good morning,


National Preparedness Month serves as a reminder to take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and learn. With all of the challenges New Yorkers have faced, the 2022 theme of National Preparedness Month is: "A Lasting Legacy." NYC Emergency Management and its partner hosts in-person and virtual preparedness events throughout the month for New Yorkers, their communities, and their businesses. Each week there will be a theme. Additional information can be found here.


  • Week 1: Make A Plan

  • Week 2: Pack A Go Bag

  • Week 3: Prepare for Coastal Storms and Floods

  • Week 4: Teach and Talk to Children About Preparedness
