Social Reinsertion During the Pandemic

Please join the Region 2 National Preparedness Division in partnership with Americares for a webinar on social reinsertion and managing the fear of leaving your home during the pandemic.

A global emergency, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, can affect people on many levels.

Faced with the challenge of resuming ordinary social practices, while there is still a risk of contagion, many people may experience intense fear of leaving their homes. Faced with this challenge, there are measures that can be taken to reduce fear without abandoning proper precautions.

alert - info

The biweekly Preparedness and Resilience Bulletin shares news, upcoming webinars and events, training opportunities, funding announcements, articles and preparedness tips. Subscribe to receive this resource designed with the whole community in mind.

"What Would You Do" Scenarios

A key element to successfully responding to and recovering from a major disaster is the overall preparedness of individual citizens, families and the community. With that in mind, we invite you to participate in a series of ‘What would you do?’ scenarios to assess your level of preparedness. These tabletop activities are intended to be low-stress conversation starters for the whole community. Each scenario includes discussion questions for the activity, a facilitator guide and some helpful links to enhance individual and community preparedness.

Youth Preparedness Council

FEMA’s National Youth Preparedness Council (YPC) was created in 2012 to bring together youth leaders interested in supporting disaster preparedness and making a difference in their communities with national and local preparedness projects. Since 2012 many states, counties and municipalities have adopted this model to form their own YPCs.  

The Region II YPC supports FEMA’s ongoing commitment to involve the youth of America in preparedness-related activities and resilience. Students from New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and our Tribal Nations come together to implement preparedness projects in an effort to make their communities better prepared and more resilient.

If you have any questions, please send us an email.

Regional Long-Term Recovery

Our capabilities were tested in 2012 when Hurricane Sandy affected the entire East Coast from Florida to Maine, as well as states as far inland as West Virginia, Ohio and Indiana. The storm’s effects were extensive, leaving millions without power, destroying hundreds of thousands of homes and causing tens of billions in damages. Read more on our Historic Disaster Page.
