The Ramsey Office of Emergency Management
Emergency Preparedness Booklet
The Ramsey Office of Emergency Management was chartered in 1944, during World War II. In the ensuing 62 years, it has grown tremendously in response to the intensification of the different types of emergencies that could occur in the borough. The Emergency Operations Center, in the Municipal Building, is equipped with the latest communications and computers to monitor any hazard, respond with Ramsey’s other public safety agencies, and report any serious conditions to Ramsey’s residents, the county, the state, and the federal government.
Ramsey OEM’s well-trained staff contains as many Eagle Scouts as most Boy Scout troops, more amateur radio operators in most ham radio clubs, the same number of Emergency Medical Technicians and Certified First Responders as many area ambulance corps, and as many law enforcement officers as several police departments in Bergen County.
Due to the sophistication of Ramsey’s population, we have published guidebooks, available at the Borough Hall to provide the tools for individuals and families to prepare for an emergency and be able to cope with most problems before help arrives.

Immediately following a serious emergency situation in the Borough of Ramsey, we will activate the SwiftReach Community Reverse 911 system and notify our residents and businesses of the status of the condition that exists.
We also provide three pages on important emergency information in the Who’s Who In Ramsey telephone directory.
