Emergency Management

Responsibilities
The Township of Moorestown Office of Emergency Management exists to serve the emergency needs of the community whether it be a natural disaster, major storm system, long-term power outages, chemical or hazardous material incident or terrorist threat.

Preparedness Planning
Three steps to storm ready safety planning:
Emergency Preparedness for People with Disabilities
The National Organization on Disability provides important information for emergency preparedness and disaster readiness tips for people with disabilities.

Storm Damage Reporting Procedure
The Office of Construction and the Office of Emergency Management needs to relay important information to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In order for residents to qualify for a low interest loan, FEMA must be notified, within 24 hours, when structural damage is incurred as the result of a natural disaster, in which a Disaster Declaration is to be made. If your home or business incurs damage, please contact the Office of Construction at 856-235-0912, ext. 3018, as soon as possible. A team of damage assessors will be sent out to estimate the cost of repair and replacement, and help you with your application.

Burlington County Hazardous Mitigation Planning Project
Under the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, every State, County and Municipality must have a Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan approved by FEMA in place. Moorestown Township, through our Office of Emergency Management, is participating in a multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Planning Project underwritten by a grant obtained by the Burlington County Office of Emergency Management.
