Dear Mr. Obscura:

Please be advised that this is the email address for the submission of FOIL requests for the administrative records of this administrative Office for the State court system. You do not appear to be requesting such records that would be maintained by this Office.

To the extent that your request implicates NYC emergency planning records, you should direct your request to the City agency that might be involved in such matters. You may wish to conduct an online search to properly direct your request.

Very truly yours,
