Established in 1982 the Eatontown Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is responsible for Federal and State Law, for the coordination of all Emergency Services in the Borough of Eatontown. We know that Emergencies can strike anytime, anywhere and in many forms, such as a hurricane, snow storm, earthquake, flood, fire, and hazardous material; an act of nature or an act of terrorism.
The Borough of Eatontown Office of Emergency Management is responsible for implementing, reviewing, and updating the Emergency-Operating Plan. The Emergency Operating Plan (EOP) contains annexes for each borough department delineating what their responsibilities are in the event of an emergency or disaster. Where Borough departments cannot provide specific support services, outside agencies, such as the American Red Cross and Salvation Army, are contracted through verbal and written agreements to provide the service needed.
The Emergency Operating Plan is reviewed and approved every 3 years by the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management. Annexes must be tested through functional, tabletop, and full-scale exercises. The Borough's Emergency Operating Center (EOC) is located adjacent to the police communications center in the municipal building. In times of crisis, all members of the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) respond to Borough Hall and meet to address the emergency.
