The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management is investigating exactly how and why the erroneous emergency alert message was sent on 05/23/17. In the meantime, we have received excellent questions on how you and your family can be prepared for emergencies in the future. We encourage families to build an emergency kit for their home should they need to shelter in place, pack a go-bag in case they need to leave their home with little or no notice, and make a communication plan together. Need help getting started? Visit www.ready.nj.gov to get prepared today! Emergency Preparedness Around New Jersey's Nuclear Generating Stations New Jersey has nuclear generating stations in Salem County (the Salem and Hope Creek Generating Stations) and in Ocean County (the Oyster Creek Generating Station).

All residents in the areas of New Jersey ’s nuclear generating stations should become familiar with this information and keep it handy, just as you would with medical, police, fire and emergency directions. By understanding this information, you are taking an important step for your family’s safety. To obtain this information visit www.state.nj.us/njoem/plan/emb_nuclear_generating_stations.html Preparedness is for everyone! Include pets in your emergency plans.
