New York City

Alliance for Response NYC was established in 2004 as a local volunteer organization focused on connecting emergency responders with representatives of the cultural heritage community. Our goal is to strengthen mitigation and response capabilities of the NYC cultural heritage and arts communities through training opportunities, fostering of local planning efforts, and improved dialogue and partnerships. AFR NYC comprises a cross-section of public and private individuals, businesses, agencies, and institutions interested in the preservation of New York City’s cultural holdings.
