Emergency Management

Office of Emergency Management

The Camden County Office of Emergency Management is responsible for maintaining and enforcing the New Jersey state disaster laws. The state law requires every municipality to have a state approved Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) and to appoint a coordinator. The State Emergency Management Office assists the 37 county municipalities in developing their EOPs and keeping them current. The local emergency management coordinators, along with members of public safety organizations, volunteer, and private entities, such as the Red Cross, know their responsibilities and how they are expected to conduct their job. The Office of Emergency Management is charged with coordinating the efforts of these agencies and organizations during a disaster or natural emergency.
