Emergency Resources

New Jersey is a unique place with a variety of landscapes that offer opportunities for its citizens from all regions to develop local strategies to become more resilient in the face of severe storms and flooding. Flooding can render vehicles unable to operate, damage the structure of homes, render roadways impassable, and delay emergency and first responders.
