New York City's Office of Emergency Management Turns to Facebook


The New York City Office of Emergency Management recently launched a Facebook Page to help keep the more than 2 million NYC Facebook users up to date on emergency information, community event listings and volunteer opportunities. Development of the page is the result of a preparedness poll in which more than 50% of people said they use Facebook to stay informed on events around the city.

“OEM’s use of technology to serve the citizens of New York City is an excellent example for other cities and emergency management organizations to follow,” said Chris Kelly, Chief Privacy Officer and Head of Global Public Policy at Facebook.
