Voluntary Evacuations Urged

This is an urgent message from the Salem County Office of Emergency Management. 

In light of the pending hurricane, emergency management officials are advising residents in low-lying or flood prone areas to voluntarily evacuate by early afternoon Saturday.  We suggest you seek shelter with a friend or family in a safe area.  Individuals with special needs may wish to consider earlier evacuation.

Salem County will open mass care shelters on Saturday evening.  As details are finalized for locations we will provide it again through this reverse 911 system and local media and emergency organizations.

Please do not call 911 for non-emergency assistance.  You may reach out to your local town officials for specific town information.

If you have not done so previously please visit (spelled out and repeated) for information on preparing for an emergency including hurricanes.
Thank You.
