Local Emergency Planning Committee

Description
Emergency Management is defined as the discipline and profession of applying science, technology, planning and management to deal with events that can injure or kill people, do extensive damage and/or otherwise disrupt a community. In Washington Township, both the Division of Police and Division of Emergency Management fall within the Department of Law Enforcement. As such, the Division of Emergency Management answers to the Director of Law Enforcement, who is the Chief of Police.

The Office of Emergency Management is available on a 24/7 basis to the residents and business community of Washington Township. Additionally, Washington Township has reciprocal “mutual aid” agreements to assist other public and private sector entities during the course of given emergencies.

Members will be notified of meetings through email as needed.
