We are very aware that weather emergencies impact ALL communities throughout the state.

This full-day event will educate New Jersey communities most affected by weather emergencies on the resources available to them from the utilities that service them including electric, phone, gas, and water; as well as emergency procurement procedures. The utilities will share and discuss their emergency planning, communication procedures, and provide contact information for cohesive coordination during weather emergencies. The afternoon will be dedicated to nuclear utility responses and related community coordination.

Please notify your emergency management personnel about the change in date and location for this valuable learning opportunity. CEUs are approved for CMFO, RMC, CPWM.
