The Office of Emergency Management is responsible for the four phases of emergency management.
The purpose is to protect life and property in emergencies by coordinating response activities of municipal and volunteer entities to ensure their optimum use. It provides for actions to be taken to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from the effects of an emergency. This plan is an all hazards approach to emergency management and covers natural disasters, technological disasters, and security crises.
This office works closely with County, State, and Federal Emergency Management Organizations to ensure a rapid, well-coordinated response to emergencies. The Office of Emergency Management continually develops and revises Ventnor City's Emergency Operations Plan to address the potential threats to the City.
