Emergency & Fire

Montgomery Township Police Department has an Office of Emergency Management which provides mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery, and coordination for large-scale emergencies and disasters for the purpose of saving lives and preventing property damage.

Montgomery volunteer first responder organizations provide Emergency Services, including two fire companies and Montgomery Emergency Medical Services. See links on left for more.

Are You Ready?

The Montgomery Township Office of Emergency Management encourages our residents to begin planning for emergencies now – pre-planning can help ease the impact of a crisis when one arises.

Be in the know when an emergency happens: Everyone is urged to sign up now for Nixle Alerts and Smart911 (links above.)

If members of your household have disabilities or access and functional needs during an emergency, let first responders know this.  Register in advance with Register Ready or Project Lifesaver (links above.)

Develop a family communication plan and prepare an emergency supply kit before a crisis occurs to help make it less stressful. The following are recommended steps:

  • Gather emergency supplies that should include at minimum a three-day supply of food and water, health supplies, personal care items, safety supplies, electronics and important documents. Make sure the kit is readily accessible.
  • Plan for sheltering (staying at home), and learn all evacuation routes in case you have to leave your home.
  • Create a plan for contacting loved ones that can be used in different emergencies.
  • Stay informed by signing up for local emergency alerts now and tuning in to reliable news sources.
  • Learn more ways to prepare from the NJ Office of Emergency Management's Disaster Help website and PSE&G's Storm Safety page.
