New York City Emergency Notifications

$179 / year

This dataset contains the messages sent with information about emergency events and important New York City services.


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.
