With  The Lincoln Park Office of Emergency Management, together with the LPPD, LPFD, LPEMS and County, State and Federal agencies are doing their best to provide for the safety and well being of everyone in the community.

Please visit http://www.floodsafety.noaa.gov/ for more information on flood preparation and safety.

We are always looking for residents to become part of Lincoln Park's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).  The CERT program partners Lincoln Park’s Emergency Services and the residents they serve. The goal is for emergency personnel to train residents, community organizations & businesses of Lincoln Park in basic response skills. If a flood or other disaster occurs which overwhelms or delays the community's professional response, CERT members assist other residents by applying basic response and organizational skills which they learn during training.

The Emergency Notification System (aka Reverse 911) that is provided through Morris County, when activated, will generate phone calls to the community with messages regarding any Emergency and the steps that you should take. PLEASE NOTE: If you should receive such a call, or fax, please listen carefully to the message and, if applicable, take any action required. This system will only be implemented when an emergency is imminent.

If you are in one of the areas that were evacuated during Hurricane Irene and did not receive a call from the Reverse 911 System, please call Verizon at 1-800-837-4966 and choose the prompt allowing you to make a change to your service, or bypass all by pressing zero (0). Once a representative picks up inform them that you need your phone number updated in the 911 databases.

It is becoming more and more important that all adults keep positive identification with them at all times. The following forms are those most accepted: Photo Driver's License; passport; Alien Registration Card; County ID. Please be sure that you have such identification with you whenever possible. In addition, you should have identification for minor children readily available. This information should be kept in a secure place that is easily accessible to an adult member of the household.

We would like to also take the time to remind you that any suspicious activity that you observe should be reported to the authorities. This holds true not only in Lincoln Park, but wherever you may be.

If you have any questions, please call 973-694-6100 x 2021
