Emergency Information

This page will include Emergency Information for the Township of Egg Harbor Township and will be updated.

The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management has created a Coastal Evacuation Route map for the counties of New Jersey. Its evacuation route map of Atlantic County can be found here: http://www.state.nj.us/njoem/plan/pdf/maps/atlantic_evac.pdf

Multiple coastal evacuation routes pass through the Township that connects the Absecon Island communities to the mainland. ¬These routes include:
- Ocean Heights Avenue (County Route 559)
- Garden State Parkway
- Black Horse Pike (Route 40/Route 322)
- Atlantic City Expressway
- Margate Boulevard (County Route 563)
- Somers Point-Longport Boulevard (NJ State Route 152)

Somers Point-Longport Boulevard, Margate Boulevard, and the Black Horse Pike are each accessible from the back bay portion of the Township. The Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City Expressway each have limited access from the Township. Planning an evacuation route as well as rendezvous point out of the flood area in advance can be a life-saving measure. Know the routes nearest to your house, and pick a landmark away from the hazard area to meet with other members of your household in the event that you are separated during the evacuation process.

Detailed flood safety precautions information can be found on ReadyAtlantic.org (http://www.readyatlantic.org/prepare/flood.asp), which is a website operated by Atlantic County providing detailed disaster preparedness information for a range of potential hazards.
