Office of Emergency Management

Each municipality has emergency management coordinators who interact at the local level with police, fire, EMS, public works, public health, schools, etc. The Fredon OEM Coordinator is Keith Festa.

Preparing for and carrying out all emergency functions—also known as comprehensive emergency management—is accomplished in four phases.

The County’s Office of Emergency Management has developed a county-wide pre-disaster all-hazards mitigation plan that has identified hazards and vulnerabilities in all of Sussex County’s twenty four municipalities.

The division also oversees two community alert programs, Swift911™ and Register Ready, that are of tremendous service to the public. Emergency Alert Service
