New Jersey reveals new emergency response plan

Emergency Management Alert, October 28, 2008

After 18 months of planning, New Jersey has released a new state emergency management plan dubbed the EMS Annex, which includes response plans to emergencies anywhere in northern New Jersey.

The new response plan includes the use of a helicopter, a mobile hospital, and 20 specialized emergency response vehicles, according to The Star-Ledger.  Over 25 locations, including the George Washington Bridge, that were deemed “vulnerable” by the state office of Homeland Security were covered in the new plan.

Over 50 federal and state emergency agencies endorsed the EMS Annex during the announcement on October 22, and Brian O' Neal of the NJ Office of Homeland Security & Preparedness called the EMS Annex “a model for regional collaboration.”
