The Mount Olive Township, Office of Emergency Management’s (OEM) mission is to protect life and property by preparing the community and its resources for emergencies; and by assisting in the coordination of response activities of municipal and volunteer resources during an emergency.
OEM has the statutory responsibility to coordinate all Township emergency response plans. OEM’s responsibilities are to identify vulnerabilities, effectively mitigate disasters, public education, respond to all hazard emergency situations, and ensure continuity of government and business and to facilitate an effective recovery. OEM will coordinate with local, state and federal agencies as well as private entities to develop, maintain and implement the Emergency Operations Plan.
OEM is prepared to activate an Emergency Operations Center during any major disaster to allow coordination of all support agencies to provide continuity of services to the public. New Jersey law requires approval of emergency operations plans and the appointment of an Emergency Management Coordinator and Deputy Coordinators for the Township of Mount Olive.
In the event of an emergency where there is an extended loss of electricity, OEM has identified the Mount Olive Township Senior Center, located at the Municipal Complex, as the site which may be utilized as a warming center during a storm. If you need to utilize the warming center contact the Police Department’s Communications Center at 973-691-0850.
Besides working closely with the Mayor, Business Administrator, Chief of Police, Fire Chiefs, First Aid Squad Captains and DPW Director, the Mount Olive Township, Office of Emergency Management receives support from the Morris County Office of Emergency Management and the New Jersey State Office of Emergency Management.
