About This Initiative

NYC Service coordinates efforts to systematize processes and communications for spontaneous and affiliated volunteers during emergencies. 

NYC Service partners with the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) as well as non-profits and community-based organizations to recruit New Yorkers who can assist the public and our first responders in case of an emergency. 

EmergeNYC is a primary, ongoing volunteer opportunity to serve as Coastal Storm Plan (CSP) volunteers and Commodity Distribution Points (CDP) volunteers during a disaster or emergency activation.
