Plan & Prepare
Types of Emergency
The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management works closely with our federal, state and local partners to prepare for all hazards, natural or manmade, that could affect New Jersey’s families, communities and businesses.
There are also things you can do to prepare for the unexpected and reduce the stress you may feel should an emergency arise.
For New Jersey residents, the basics of preparedness are
all the same. They begin with creating your Emergency
Action Plan and your Emergency Supply Kit. Go
to the NJOEM
Basic Preparedness page to get started.
The following links provide information about specific hazards and the additional steps you can take to prepare.
