A look at the new Notify NYC app.

The New York City Emergency Management Department and the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DOITT) on Friday, September 22 launched the Notify NYC app – the city’s first emergency notification mobile app.

With the new Notify NYC app – available for free download for Apple and Android devices – New Yorkers can get information about emergency events and important city services, based on their location. It also offers real-time emergency updates on events from hurricanes and blizzards to major traffic and mass transit disruptions, public health hazards, school closings and unscheduled parking rule suspensions.

“It’s crucial that New Yorkers know what’s going on around the city, especially in an emergency,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “This new app will make it easier than ever to stay informed and get alerts about what’s happening – both nearby and citywide.”

The Notify NYC app is the latest upgrade to the Notify NYC program – the city’s free, official source for information about emergency events and important city services.
