Perth Amboy Office of Emergency Management

The City of Perth Amboy Office of Emergency Management is a local government agency. The mission of Perth Amboy OEM is to reduce loss of life and property and to protect our community and critical infrastructure from all types of hazards and disasters through a comprehensive, risk based program of mitigation, prevention, preparedness, response and recovery from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made disasters, by coordinating and integrating all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the community resiliency. This is accomplished through partnerships with our Local, County, State and Federal responders as well as our local stake holders throughout our City.

The Office of Emergency Management is also responsible for training emergency and civilian personnel for response to disasters and emergencies. Additionally, OEM is tasked with overseeing and administrating many other programs within the City. Some of these programs are personnel programs including the Auxiliary Police Unit, Community Emergency Response Team, and Local Emergency Planning Council. Other programs are emergency communications systems including the Citywide Emergency Radio Communication System and Public Emergency Notification Systems. Financial programs OEM oversees include FEMA grants, State Grants, and the Federal Disaster reimbursement program. To ensure community resiliency in the face of disaster, the Office of Emergency management also maintains the City Emergency Operations Plan, Disaster Response Plans including the Municipal Continuity of Operations Plan and Hazard Mitigation Plan, and the City Emergency Operations Center and Mobile Command Center used for Command Staff to coordinate disaster response.
