The South Harrison Township Office of Emergency Management (OEM) exists to serve the emergency needs of the community whether it be a natural disaster, major storm system, long-term power outages, chemical or hazardous material incident or terrorist threat. OEM is responsible for an emergency management plan that prepares for, responds to, and recovers from any natural or manmade event that may occur in South Harrison Township.

Gloucester County Hazard Mitigation Plan

On October 30, 2000, President Clinton signed the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, also known as “DMA 2000”. DMA 2000 established a requirement that local and state governments must develop and adopt hazard mitigation plans (HMPs) to maintain eligibility for federal hazard mitigation grants and programs. 

The Mitigation Plan for Four New Jersey Counties (NJ4 HMP) responds to this requirement for the participating jurisdictions within Camden, Gloucester, Salem, and Cumberland Counties in southwestern New Jersey.
