NYC Members: Please Complete Preparedness Capabilities Survey for 2023-2024 NYC DOHMH Jurisdictional Risk Assessment
The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) has commenced its 2023-2024 Jurisdictional Risk Assessment (JRA), an assessment conducted every five years – as required by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – that aims to gather information about public health threats, analyze them, and identify the most important threats based on how likely they are to exceed existing City emergency response capabilities.
The first round of the JRA consists of a Preparedness Capabilities Survey, which will evaluate NYC’s preparedness level as outlined by the CDC’s 15 Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Capabilities. All NYC members, regardless of service line, are urged to complete the survey, which can be accessed here. The results of this survey and a second round Hazard Assessment Survey will culminate in a public report, expected in September 2024, that will inform future public health emergency planning priorities in NYC.
