Office of Emergency Preparedness

 Welcome to Atlantic County’s one stop source of information to prepare yourself and your loved ones for emergencies or disasters that may affect Atlantic County. This web site is devoted to keeping you informed, alert, and most of all READY for disasters or emergency situations. On this web site you can check the homeland security status, register a loved one with a special need, prepare your pet, but most importantly prepare yourself and your family in the event of a disaster. Learn what events could affect our community, develop a personal emergency plan for yourself and your family, what supplies to have on hand should something happen, as well as information you may need in the event of a public health emergency.

Following the tragic events that occurred on September 11, 2001, state and local government officials have increased opportunities for citizens to become an integral part of protecting the homeland and supporting the local first responders. Officials agree that the formula for ensuring a more secure and safer homeland consists of preparedness, training, and citizen involvement in supporting first responders. In January 2002, the President of the United States launched Citizen Corps, to capture the spirit of service that emerged throughout our communities following the terrorist attacks.

Citizen Corps, including Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), was created to help coordinate volunteer activities that will make our communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to any emergency situation. It provides opportunities for people to participate in a range of measures to make their families, their homes, and their communities safer from the threats of crime, terrorism, and disasters of all kinds.
