New York Silver Jackets

Representatives from New York State and Federal agency representatives meet to coordinate ongoing and future needs within the State to better manage ongoing and future flood risks.  Combined, these efforts, contributions and actions form the New York Silver Jacket team.   


New York’s Silver Jackets Team is devoted to improving New York’s flood risk management and reduction efforts by improving access to quality flood risk data, coordination, communication among the agencies, communicating risk related to floods and other hazards, and application to Interagency Proposals.

Team Activities

Planned FY22 Activities

  1. Tropical Storm Agnes – 50th Anniversary Campaign – An outreach campaign is being planned to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Tropical Storm Agnes and the goal is to highlight the event to illustrate changes in flood risk reduction programs that have been implemented since Agnes in 1972.
  2. Emergency Action Plan training sessions – These training sessions are being facilitated to help local governments develop their Emergency Action Plans.
  3. Information Guide – An interagency guide is being put together to provide local governments information on federal programs which can provide flood risk management opportunities and points of contact.

(Team meetings are held three times a year. If interested in the New York Silver Jackets Team, please contact one of the numbers in the For More Information Contact section.)
