The Office of Emergency Management is the unit of local government created under New Jersey law to provide for the health, safety and welfare of our citizens during times of emergency and disaster. Severe weather, floods, hurricanes, chemical spills, explosions, building collapse and plane crashes can all happen at any time.
The main focus of the Office of Emergency Management is to coordinate actions to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from the effects of an emergency. The Borough Council of the Borough of Union Beach appoints an Emergency Management Coordinator and two Deputy Coordinators to prepare disaster management plans, declare a "state of emergency" if needed, and coordinate the responses of emergency personnel within the Borough.
The Emergency Management Plan establishes emergency procedures and coordinates activities involving Alerts and Warnings, Damage Assessment, an Emergency Operations Center, Evacuations, Fire and Rescue, Hazardous Materials, Law Enforcement, Public Works, Public Health, Resource Management, Radiological Protection, Shelters and Social Services Reception and Care along with Memorial School.
This office is also responsible for providing the public with up to the minute information on all disasters and emergencies as needed through its radio station at 1610am.
