The Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP) 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.

During times of severe emergencies or disasters the office activates the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) which is located in a hurricane proof wing of the Anthony "Tony" Canale Training Center. 

The Office of Emergency Preparedness continually develops and revises Atlantic County's Emergency Operations Plan to address the potential threats to the County. We use what is called an "all hazards" approach to emergency planning. This allows us to inventory and maintain the necessary resources to best meet the needs of any challenge we are faced with.

Training Courses - OEP On-line Campus

The Atlantic County OEP now offers a variety of training opportunities.  It is our intention to provide training for all public safety personnel in the county, and surrounding areas. We offer a wide array of courses for both citizens, and professionals.  You can register for courses on line and we offer direct, on-line training opportunities.
