A division of the Monmouth County Sheriff's Office, the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management is responsible for the development, maintenance and implementation of the County’s all hazard Emergency Operations Plan. The plan is made up of 15 functional annexes that outline how the county will function during emergency or disaster conditions. The office also acts as the conduit to the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management for the 53 municipal emergency management programs. Through a multi-disciplinary working group which is comprised of various different response organizations, the office also manages all of the homeland security funding that is received by the county.
The Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management is staffed by five full-time personnel, an acting director, three deputy coordinators, a domestic preparedness planner, and an administrative assistant.
One of the county OEM's projects is working with FEMA Region II on a coastal analysis and mapping project.
