As part of National Preparedness Month, OEM is urging New York residents to sign up for Notify NYC, the City’s official emergency notification system. Subscribers receive text messages, e-mails, phone calls or Tweets about significant citywide events, as well as smaller events happening in their own neighborhoods. These notifications cover topics such as severe weather, school closures, subway disruptions, and traffic advisories in all areas of the city.
Notify NYC is critical in keeping New York City residents, families, and commuters informed, and it’s completely free! Anyone can sign up and customize the alerts they would like to receive by visiting www.nyc.gov/notifynyc or following @NotifyNYC .
ONE LUCKY BRONXMAMA READER will win a $50 home improvements gift card to help get the supplies they need to be prepared for any disaster. TO ENTER: Leave a comment letting us know what you have done so far to prepare your family for an emergency. A random winner will be chosen.
