The new plates are designed to make it easier to recognize emergency response vehicles during storms or other emergency situations. According to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, the vehicle must either be owned or controlled and registered in the name of the agency or locality in order to be eligible for the new plate.

The plates have a white background with a red banner and have the letters “EM” on them for Emergency Management.

For additional information on plate availability and use, contact the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services at (518) 242-5202.
