Aware Prepare

Be Informed - Be Aware


It is important to be aware of what hazards may impact your community. New Yorkers have many ways to be aware and stay informed of what is happening in their community. Knowing what to do before, during and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.

In addition to getting emergency information and updates through radio and television news, you can sign up for NY-ALERT to receive emergency information via the web, cell phone, email, and other technologies.
