Good Evening,

My name is Kunal Malhotra and I am the new Legislative and Budget Director
for New York City Council Member Gale Brewer of District 6, Upper West Side
Manhattan. Recently Bruce Lai, Council Member Brewer's former Chief of
Staff, moved to the Depatment of Education in the Office of the Chief
Information Officer. I now serve in the capacity as Gale Brewer's
Technology Policy contact dedicated to bridging this great city's digital
divide and progress towards to true digital equality. Please feel free to
contact me with any questions or concerns regarding legislative, budgetary
or technology issues pertaining to CM Brewer or the City.

I am writing to let you know that there will be a joint oversight hearing by
the Committees on Technology in Government and the Lower Manhattan
Redevelopment on Wednesday, September 19, at 10 AM, in response to the
August 19th Deutsche Bank Building fire at City Hall. The hearing will
address community notification of catastrophic incidents as well as review
the lessons learned from the Deutsch Bank fire and other recent incidents in
relation to Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication (CERC). The hearing
will open with the City's current CERC policy on preparedness, response,
message, information management, etc. Other topics to be discussed include
how the City actually transmits their messages to the citizenry through
alarms, email, text messaging, reverse 911, and other methods. The hearing
will also review how the City crafts its message for different
constituencies, i.e. affected individuals vs. the city at large. Finally,
the hearing will discuss new approaches in community notification available
in technology, policy, and the current status of how established lines of
communication, namely 311 and 911, are reaching the citizenry.

Sincerely,

Kunal Malhotra
Director of Legislation and Budget
