As part of the Zika Day of Action initiative, health representatives will be on hand to distribute flyers and pamphlets and to educate residents about the virus. 

New Yorkers are encouraged to stop by to learn how to be prepared for any emergency, including steps to make a plan, gather supplies, and stay informed. Residents will also learn how they can join New York City Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), a program consisting of more than 2,000 volunteers dedicated to help helping their communities during emergencies.
