Office of Emergency Management embroidered uniform patch featuring the city municipal seal in white in the center. Text embroidered in silver, against a blue background reads: "City of New york | Mayor's Office of Emergency Management." The entire patch has a silver-embroidered border.
In 2001, the Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management was a newly formed agency comprised of personnel drawn from the police, fire, and other emergency agencies. Headquartered on the 23rd floor of 7 World Trade Center, the agency operated a citywide command center equipped with the most up-to-date communications technology. Its interagency mandate and equipment enabled direct communication with FDNY and NYPD commands.
