New Individual & Family Emergency Response Guides

The New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response released scenario-specific response guides. With input from their community partners, they created 10 Individual and Family Response Guides that provide actionable guidance on how to response during specific emergencies. The guides cover biological, chemical, cyber, extreme weather, radiological, pandemic, and explosive threats.

The office also created a Community and Business Consolidated Response Guide toolkit, which provides both preparedness and response guidance to organizations on the same scenarios. The information is available in 12 languages.
