Stay In The Know With Notify NYC! #NotifyNYC @NotifyNYC #Ad

It’s unbelievable how much can happen in a “New York Minute!” Those of us who have lived in the Big Apple for years know how important it is to stay in the know when it comes to all up-to-date information that impacts all New Yorkers.

As part of New York City’s Emergency Management (NYCEM), Notify NYC is New York City’s official source for information about emergency alerts and important city services. Notify NYC staff operate 24/7 out of Watch Command where they constantly monitor emergency activity in New York City and the metropolitan area.

Since I am a mom and a full-time educator I rely on Notify NYC to alert me when there is an emergency in my area. After all, being able to make informed decisions in those critical moments are crucial to the well-being of my family as well as my students.

I never want to be in the position where an important event or emergency takes place in New York City and I am unable to receive information in a timely manner to be able to protect my family and loved ones. As I receive updates from my husband’s family in Puerto Rico during the earthquake that took place this week, I am reminded why Notify NYC is such an important resource for my family and for all New Yorkers!
