Throughout its history, New York City has faced many hazards. From the fire of 1835, to the severe heat waves of 2006, to the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, our city has endured and recovered from a breadth of hazards - each time stronger, more informed about the risks it faces, and better able to prepare and protect for the future its many residents, buildings, infrastructure networks, and natural resources. New York City’s Risk Landscape: A Guide to Hazard Mitigation builds on a tradition to rebound, and opens a new chapter in the City’s efforts to increase public awareness about the risks from a range of hazards that the City faces today and in the future. Prepared by a team assembled by the New York City Emergency Management Department, in partnership with Department of City Planning, and in close coordination with the Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency, the Guide serves as a resource on hazards risk reduction.
