The Office of Emergency Management (OEM)

Review Trenton's Approved All Hazard Mitigation Plan

The City of Trenton Office of Emergency Management works closely with the State of New Jersey and Mercer County in the event of a natural or manmade disaster. The City of Trenton Emergency plans were updated and certified by the State Office of Emergency Management through October of 2007.

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is an agency at the local, state or national level that holds responsibility of comprehensively planning for and responding to all manner of disasters, whether man-made or natural. An OEM may also be requested to provide consequence management for large special events such as major gatherings and visiting dignitaries.

Emergency Management organizations often hold different names (such as "office of emergency preparedness" or "emergency management agency"), but perform the same function. In the United States, FEMA is the agency responsible for emergency management on the national level.  Large federal and state agencies, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the N.J. Environmental Protection Agency as well as private companies often maintain OEM's as discrete departments responsible for handling organizational emergency preparations and response plans.
