The Southampton Office of Emergency Management is responsible for maintaining and enforcing the New Jersey Disaster Laws. The state law requires every municipality to have a state approved Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) and to appoint a Coordinator. The local Emergency Management Coordinator along with members of public safety organizations, volunteer and private entities, such as the Red Cross, knows their responsibilities and how they are expected to conduct their job. The Office of Emergency Management is charged with coordinating the efforts of these agencies and organizations during a disaster or natural emergency. Some of the events in which the Office of Emergency Management takes a leadership role are Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Flash Floods, Thunderstorms, Forest Fires, Winter Storms, Hazardous Waste spills and overall Disaster Preparedness.
