NY State Plans to Overhaul its Emergency Preparedness & Management Capabilities

Bravo for the pro-active and far-reaching scope of the 3 new commissions created by Governor Cuomo of NY.  All three of them are comprised of top flight members, whose mission is to  “undertake a comprehensive review and make specific recommendations to overhaul and improve NY State’s emergency preparedness and response capabilities, as well as examine how to improve the strength and resilience of the state’s infrastructure to better withstand major weather incidents.”  Interestingly, the word recovery does not show up anywhere.

The three organizations are:

  1. NYS 2100 Commission;
  2. NYS Respond Commission; and
  3. NYS Ready Commission.

More details about the commissions and their members are in THIS ARTICLE (Nov. 29, 2012)
