Summary: This bill would require the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to create local emergency preparedness public awareness materials with information relevant to neighborhoods where there is a particular risk of an evacuation due to a coastal storm or hurricane. The materials would provide information such as the locations of the nearest evacuation centers, the borders of evacuation zones and possibly contact information for local organizations that could provide assistance after an emergency. The materials would also be translated into the ten most commonly spoken languages within that community, and made available online.

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the distribution of localized emergency preparedness materials.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
Section 1. Chapter one of title 30 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 30-114 to read as follows:
§ 30-114 Localized emergency preparedness materials. The commissioner shall develop and disseminate localized emergency preparedness materials for communities in which there is a risk of evacuation due to coastal storms or hurricanes to increase public awareness as to the appropriate responses by members of the public to such risk and of the resources available during such coastal storm or hurricane within and near such communities. Such materials shall:
a. be limited to information relevant to that community, as identified by zip code or contiguous zip codes in a geographic area;
b. identify any local evacuation zones, evacuation centers or other such geographic information relevant to an evacuation;
c. identify and provide contact information for any local patrol precinct or firehouse;  
d. at the discretion of the commissioner, identify and provide contact information for any charitable organization or not-for-profit organization that the commissioner identifies as having the potential to provide services or materials that may be beneficial to such community after a coastal storm or hurricane;
e. provide any other information deemed relevant by the commissioner; and
f. be distributed within communities at risk of evacuation due to coastal storms or hurricanes in the top ten most commonly spoken languages within each such community as determined by the commissioner in consultation with the department of city planning, and be made available online.
§2. This local law shall take effect ninety days after its enactment into law.
