Among the 78 new city schools Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced would open next fall will be the nation's first public high school of emergency management, one of the city's longer-term responses to Hurricane Sandy. According to NY1, the city worked with FEMA to plan the Urban Assembly School of Emergency Management, in which students will study things like meteorology, changes in flood zones, management, and communications. Not by coincidence, the school will open in a Manhattan school building that served as a shelter during the storm.
