Hurricane season 2018 has begun. For over four years, C&G Partners has been working with NYC Emergency Management to design Know Your Zone, the city's hurricane awareness campaign that encourages New Yorkers to find out which zone they live in. Running through this year's season (June 1 until November 30), the 2018 campaign includes new PSA videos of a diverse array of real New Yorkers who survived hurricanes and have been trained as volunteers to support NYC first responders. The interview-style videos were produced, scripted, filmed, and directed by C&G Partners in conjunction with Cruz Dann Productions.Read More
