Winter Preparedness

December 4, 2020

While there should always be an emphasis placed on safety, it is even more important nowadays.  While it is smart to be prepared for an emergency, it is especially prudent during the winter in New York City. As the weather gets colder and the holidays approach, we urge everybody to stay vigilant, and stay safe.

Emergencies affect every community differently, but you can help your community be prepared and resilient. Having resources, and taking precautions are big part of how everyone can prepare for, respond to, and recover from an emergency.
