Office of Emergency Management

In an emergency, dial 9-1-1 immediately.

Mission Statement
New Jersey law requires every municipality and county to have a state approved emergency operations plan and to appoint an Emergency Management Coordinator, who in conjunction with local government is responsible for coordinating the necessary actions to protect lives and property during times of disaster and emergency. Municipalities must also appoint an Emergency Management Council (known as Local Emergency Planning Council-(LEPC). Emergency Management programs on all levels of our government include not only the public safety units but volunteer and private entities such as the American Red Cross, Salvation Army and many fraternal and service organizations.

There are four phases in emergency management.

1. PLANNING: Identifying hazards, preparing for contingencies.
2. RESPONSE: The Hands-on, initial response to the emergency.
3. RECOVERY: Getting back to normal, reestablish services.
4. MITIGATION: Prevent or reduce the impact of future emergencies.

The Hamburg Office of Emergency Management is very involved in the safety of the community.
