For the third straight year, The City College of New York is partnering with Harlem Hospital Center in maintaining the community’s preparedness for any large-scale disaster. On Tuesday, September 22, from 12 noon to 4 p.m., the two institutions will co-host Harlem Emergency Preparedness Day in the Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. State Office Building Plaza, located at 163 West 125th Street in Manhattan.

Members of the community are invited to attend and receive information on evacuation procedures, emergency procedures for the disabled, flood zones in Harlem, first aid care and survival go-bags.

Speakers include Eboné Carrington, deputy executive director and chief operating officer of Harlem Hospital and Stuart Reid, director of City College's WHCR 90.3FM Emergency Broadcast Team.
