Office of Emergency Management’s new Public Private Partnership to increase communication & preparedness
The Salem County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is always striving for ways to improve our community’s preparedness for disasters and the sharing of important information with our residents. The OEM’s goal for 2018 is to advance community preparedness and public communications through a new Public Private Partnership program. The PPP will create stronger ties with organizations and residents throughout Salem County.
Salem County Sheriff‘s OEM is reaching out to business, faith-based, civic, and other organizations to ask for your assistance and participation in assembling a group of businesses and agencies that are interested in supporting and furthering our efforts in the County. The PPP initiative provides a forum to develop and foster working relationships between public and private entities. Also, the program will advance capabilities that exist within our community along with discuss needs the community may have during or after a disaster. Ultimately, the program will allow OEM to help the partners build their resilience to disasters through training and planning efforts.
Please find this letter as an introduction to not only the PPP, but to Frederick Campbell. Campbell will be contacting many on behalf of the Office of Emergency Management. It is asked to help our community build preparedness for disasters and greater communications by joining our PPP and attending our first meeting.
The first Public Private Partnership kick-off meeting is scheduled for January 25, 2018 from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM at Salem County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Management, 135 Cemetery Road, Woodstown, NJ 08098. Please, feel free to contact Fred Campbell or Jeffery Pompper with any questions or concerns you may have.
