NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

About the organization

The New York City Health Department is as varied as the city it serves. Our 6,000-plus team members bring an extraordinary array of languages, cultures and experiences to bear on the work of public health. The Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response (OEPR) promotes DOHMH's and NYC's ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from health emergencies through the coordination of agency-wide emergency preparedness planning, training and exercises and through regular engagement with communities as well as city, state and federal partners. OEPR envisions a healthy, resilient city in which all New Yorkers are able to achieve and maintain optimal and equitable health outcomes before, during, and after emergencies. OEPR's work recognizes the social inequities that can negatively impact our efforts to maintain and improve the health of New Yorkers during and after a disaster. OEPR works to improve its application of a social justice and racial equity lens to its emergency preparedness
