Complexity

Established in 1996, New York City (NYC) Emergency Management is a coordinating agency for the City of New York. The agency plans and prepares for emergencies, educates the public about preparedness, coordinates emergency response and recovery, and collects and disseminates emergency information.

The agency maintains a disciplined unit of emergency management personnel — including but not limited to: responders, planners, watch commanders, logisticians, community outreach, communications, administrative and support staff — to identify and respond to various hazards.

NYC Emergency Management (formerly the Office of Emergency Management or OEM) is undergoing a rebranding process as part of a comprehensive effort to increase the public’s awareness of its presence and role in the city. This rebranding includes phasing out the use of the OEM title, acronym, and logo.

138542019-07-19T11:50:00Public AwarenessPublic Awareness - Spray Caps 7/19 (CW)Notification issued 07-19-2019 at 11:50 AM. Opening fire hydrants without spray caps is illegal, wasteful and dangerous. Illegally opened hydrants can lower water pressure and put lives at risk if there is a fire. Children can also be at risk, because the powerful force of an open hydrant without a spray cap can cause serious injury. New Yorkers should call 3-1-1 to report open hydrants. Hydrants can be opened legally with a City-approved spray cap which can be obtained by an adult, 18 or over, free of charge, at local firehouses.
