HOWalert and Emergency Preparedness Resources

Hurricane Season began on June 1. To help parishioners prepare for an emergency, we want to share this four-page reference sheet, prepared by the Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens. Download a copy and keep it handy as part of your household’s emergency disaster preparedness plan.

Emergency Disaster Planning Resource 2018 (4-page pdf) includes:
● Sheet for recording essential emergency phone numbers
● Go Bag and Emergency Supply Kits checklist
● NYC Emergency Notification Resources

HOWalert = NYC House of Worship Alert system

The Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response in NYC has partnered with New York Disaster Interfaith Services to create HOWalert as a free emergency notification system. To sign up to receive emails, texts, or voice messages with urgent information in the event of any threats posed to New York City, go to or call 212-669-6100.
