September is National Preparedness Month - “Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.” We must prepare ourselves and our families now, and throughout the year. Often, we will be first in our communities to take action after a disaster strikes and before first responders arrive, so it is important to prepare in advance to help yourself and your community.

The Public Health Emergency Preparedness & Planning unit is responsible for coordinating public health emergency response activities throughout the county. The unit works closely with the Ocean County Office of Emergency Management, local municipal emergency management coordinators, and other response partners to ensure a rapid, well-coordinated response to emergencies countywide.

The unit is also responsible for numerous planning projects such as bioterrorism, natural disasters, public health threats, preparedness and planning, as well as coordinating various community health-planning projects currently underway.

Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about any of the programs or wish to have a representative come out to speak/present.
