New York City Emergency Management is partnering with Bronx Community Board 10 to give 100 Go Bags away to help New Yorkers prepare for emergencies, from hurricanes to extreme heat.

NYC Emergency Management staff members, along with representatives from partner agencies – including FEMA, the FDNY, and the American Red Cross of Greater New York – are hosting mobile office hours in Bronx to discuss emergency preparedness and provide information about resources and services available to the public. During the event, residents will learn about steps they can take to prepare for coastal storms and heat
emergencies.

New Yorkers are encouraged to stop by to learn how to make an emergency plan, gather supplies, and stay informed. Residents will also learn how they can join New York City Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), a program consisting of more than 1,200 volunteers dedicated to help helping their communities during emergencies.

The event will take place on Thursday, August 22, 2019, between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 03:00 p.m.

Location:

Amendola Plaza
3685 Bruckner Boulevard
