The Atlantic County Office of Emergency Preparedness is responsible for coordinating responses to natural disasters, technological emergencies and severe weather emergencies in Atlantic County. The office works closely with local municipal emergency management coordinators to ensure a rapid, well coordinated response to emergencies and to avoid unnecessary duplications of service. See their web site for more information http://www.aclink.org/oep/ or visit http://www.readyatlantic.org a one stop source of information to prepare yourself and your loved ones for emergencies or disasters that may affect Atlantic County. This web site is devoted to keeping you informed, alert, and most of all READY for disasters or emergency situations. On this web site you can check the homeland security status, register a loved one with a special need, prepare your pet, but most importantly prepare yourself and your family in the event of a disaster. Learn what events could affect our community, develop a personal emergency plan for yourself and your family, what supplies to have on hand should something happen, as well as information you may need in the event of a public health emergency.
