The Rockaway Township Office of Emergency Management maintains an Emergency Operating Plan for our Township that provides vital information on the response and handling of disasters, natural and man made, within our Township. This plan is constantly re-evaluated and submitted for approval every three years to the State of New Jersey Office of Emergency Management. 

In the event of an Emergency, we will attempt to keep the public informed to the best of our ability by utilizing several communications means. The most frequently used will be NIXLE, Reverse 9-1-1, Township Web Page, OEM Hotline and message boards. This will all vary on the type of emergency that is occurring. We encourage all residents to register to receive NIXLE alerts, Reverse 9-1-1 notifications, and for residents that are in need of special attention we recommend you utilize Register Ready. This is a service that you can inform us of your special need and in case of an emergency that may effect your well being we will have the necessary information to assist you. You can also fill out the Township Special Needs Notification form as well and this information will be entered into our Dispatch System and will be available to responding emergency service personnel. Thank you.
