The Office of Emergency Management (O.E.M.) is responsible for the planning and coordination of activities during natural and man-made disasters and emergencies. Operating under our Emergency Operation Plan, O.E.M. coordinates the activities of the different emergency service units and any other agencies that might be involved during a large-scale incident. An emergency incident can strike anytime or anywhere. It may be an act of nature, such as a weather emergency, or it may be a utility, hazardous material, fire, or health emergency. Unfortunately in today’s world, it may even be an act of terrorism. We must be prepared for it all. Bergenfield residents can be assured that, locally, the Bergenfield Office of Emergency is hard at work and keeping abreast of new development and information.

Started in the 1950’s when the Civil Defense Act was signed into law, Emergency Management has evolved to its present state utilizing an all-hazards approach in managing all emergencies through mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.
