Bergen County Office of Emergency Management

The Bergen County Office of Emergency Management is an emergency management agency with responsibilities that include coordination of emergency and disaster preparedness planning, response, and recovery with and between local, state, and federal agencies. Every disaster, whether it effects one person or millions, has one thing in common, it is disruptive! The greater the impact, the more it disrupts those things we depend upon and often take for granted. “Universal” emergency or disaster education and preparedness means everyone, regardless of age or circumstance, needs to devote the time, resources and energy to understand and benefit from being “ready” for any type of an emergency.
This office is the lead agency for emergency management preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation in Bergen County:
