NYDIS’ direct services are primarily directed toward under-resourced disaster survivors, victim’s families, and impacted communities. NYDIS’ services include a range of preparedness trainings like Mental Health First Aid, Community Emergency Risk Communication (CERC), Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP), or Active Shooter in a House of Worship, our disaster risk communications and asset mapping systems for NYC religious leaders “HOWalert” and “HOWCALM“, as well as short- and long-term recovery services for survivors of disaster.
