Upper West Side CERT

A Year of Ready New York for Upper West Siders

Upper West Side CERT is right on track in its commitment to produce a readiness event for the local community at least six times a year. Its Ready New York (RNY) presentations and tabling events bring preparedness skills and awareness to diverse populations on the Upper West Side and provide a valuable opportunity to get people thinking about the value of informed self-reliance.

In the past year we have mounted:

  • 4/11/18 – RNY for 29 West 65 Street
  • 4/25/18 – RNY for 10 West 66 Street
  • 8/7/18 – National Night Out in Verdi Square
  • 9/5/18 – RNY at Community Board 7
  • 10/10/18 – Pet Safe on the Esplanade in Riverside Park
  • 2/8/19 – RNY for Seniors at Goddard Riverside Community Center
  • 3/26/19 RNY for students at Booker T. Washington Middle School

Ready New York presentations are free and available to groups of 20 people or more. We cover how to evacuate or shelter in place in the event of an emergency, how to build a Go Bag and make a plan, and how to access vital information and resources online.

If you would like to arrange a Ready New York presentation for your group, email ready@uwscert.org, and someone will get back to you.

If you are interested in becoming a CERT member, you can learn all about the program and how to get trained here. Once you are certified, UWS CERT’s Recruitment and Orientation Committee can help you find meaningful involvement with the team.

Make this your year to Get Ready!
