Upper West Side CERT and CERTs citywide have been deployed to various locations and shelters around the city to assist local agencies in providing for residents who may be unable to remain in their homes.

New York-area residents sheltering in place can follow Upper West Side CERT’s Twitter feed @UWSCERT and that of the NYC Office of Emergency Management @NYCOEM for updates and links to more information.

UWSCERT and OEM urge all New York-area residents, heed your state and local government’s official warnings — for your own safety and for the safety of our first responders who may have to put themselves in harm’s way to rescue you. As always, in the case of an emergency, dial 911.
