New York Alert

New York Alert is the New York State All-Hazards Alert and Notification web-based portal. It is part of New York State’s ongoing commitment to provide New Yorkers with information so that they will understand the risks and threats that they may face and know how to respond accordingly.  Each of us has the responsibility to be as prepared as possible for any emergencies that may arise.  One of the keys to preparedness is having up-to-date information.

This website contains critical emergency-related information including instructions and recommended protective actions developed in real-time by emergency service personnel. Concurrent with the posting to this website, that same information will be disseminated through various communications systems (e.g. email, cell phones, media outlets) to those who sign up.

The information posted here will include severe weather warnings, significant highway closures, hazardous materials spills, and many other emergency conditions.  Additionally you will find information regarding response actions being taken by local and state agencies and protective actions that you should take to protect you, your family and your property. 

By signing up for NY-Alert, you can receive warnings and emergency information via the web, your cell phone, email and other technologies.  Signing up for NY Alert is free.  Your information is protected and never shared with any one else.  You can modify what type of information you receive or unsubscribe at any time.  It is a tool to provide you with critical information when you may need it most.
