QNS: Sunnyside councilwoman introduces legislation to improve emergency communications for residents

In an effort to improve citywide disaster communications, Councilwoman Julie Won introduced two pieces of legislation that would require the city to provide emergency information in many languages and create an infrastructure for agencies to access community-integrated translation services.

Intro 137 would require the city to translate and disseminate any information from emergency declarations from the state and federal government and provide emergency notifications where applicable in designated citywide languages. Meanwhile, Intro 136 would see public-facing city agencies create comprehensive procurement lists on community integrated translation services to provide effective services in languages outside of English.
