NYC Agency Publishes Hazard Mitigation Guide

The city's Office of Emergency Management launched a "Reduce Your Risk" campaign on Nov. 21 and released NYC's Risk Landscape: A Guide to Hazard Mitigation.

A new set of resources intended to help New York City residents and property owners prepare for hazards such as flooding, winter weather, and even earthquakes is now available from the city's Office of Emergency Management. OEM launched the "Reduce Your Risk" awareness campaign and released NYC's Risk Landscape: A Guide to Hazard Mitigation on Nov. 21.

The guide offers an overview of New York City's risk landscape and risk management strategies for specific hazards ranging from pandemic influenza to earthquakes, extreme heat, flooding, coastal storms, tornadoes, and earthquakes.

The guide was created in partnership with the NYC Department of City Planning and the Mayor's Office of Recovery and Resiliency, and it used the city's 2014 Hazard Mitigation Plan as a foundation. "We respond to emergencies every day in New York City, but we also plan and prepare for future risks so that we can keep New Yorkers and our infrastructure safe for years to come," said NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph J. Esposito. "The new NYC Risk Landscape guide teaches residents about the risks they face today and in the future so that every New Yorker can be informed and prepared."

"Resiliency starts with preparation," said Daniel Zarrilli, director of the NYC Mayor's Office of Recovery and Resiliency. "By releasing this guide, the city continues to prepare for the types of shocks and stresses that can impact our neighborhoods and critical services, as part of the implementation of a comprehensive resiliency action plan to build a stronger, more resilient New York."
