The Southampton Office of Emergency Management is responsible for maintain and enforcing the New Jersey Disaster Laws. The state law requires every municipality to have a state approved Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) and to appoint a Coordinator. The local Emergency Management Coordinator along with members of public safety organizations, volunteer and private entities, such as the Red Cross, knows their responsibilities and how they are expected to conduct their job. The Office of Emergency Management is charged with coordinating the efforts of these agencies and organizations during a disaster or natural emergency. Some of the events in which the Office of Emergency Management takes a leadership role are Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Flash Floods, Thunderstorms, Forest Fires, winter storms, Hazardous Waste spills and overall Disaster Preparedness. They also are involved in coordinating with the Office of Homeland Security.
Southampton Township’s Automated Emergency Call System
The township has an Automated Call System. This call system will be used in both non-emergency and emergency township notifications. In the event of an emergency situation an emergency message will be recorded advising residents of the situation and actions to be taken. The system will then call every home phone number in the township. If you would like to be notified thru e-mail or cell phone you need to contact this office with that information so we can add it to our database.
