The tragic events of "911" and subsequent global events have made us all very aware of the necessity for adequate emergency response capabilities. Rest assured that the City of Englewood's Police and Fire Departments are ready to serve and protect the residents, businesses, and visitors of Englewood.
The City Manager and the Office of Emergency Management have the following emergency operating procedures under the policy direction of the City Council and with the cooperation of the Mayor.
Most emergencies typically involve more than one town, therefore the County of Bergen is responsible for coordinating responses to crises. The Bergen County Emergency Management telephone number is 201-634-3100. The County of Bergen, State of New Jersey (State Police), and the FBI issue emergency response orders and are in contact with the Englewood Police and Fire Departments.
We must stress the fact that the odds are strong that an act of terrorism will not occur inside Englewood boundaries. However, since many of our residents work outside of town, taking the time now to plan for an emergency allows us to remain calmer and in control should one occur. There is an evacuation plan in the event that residents have to be displaced. Residents of Englewood will be notified via reverse 911, radio & major television networks, public announcement equipment (audio & traffic billboards) and the City of Englewood's Website (www.cityofenglewood.org ).
Residents are urged to first seek and listen for the aforementioned means of notification and not inundate the 911 call center.
After a review of emergency response material, the City of Englewood has some suggestions for preparing our citizens should an emergency - including a terrorist attack - hit close to home:
We hope that the above tips are useful and make you aware of the basic steps to prepare for an emergency. Other steps may need to be taken depending upon the situation. Of course, please heed the directions of all Federal, State, and Local Emergency personnel in the event of an actual emergency.
Store your kit in an easy to carry container such as a backpack or duffel bag. Keep it in an easy to access location near an exterior door of your home.
Your kit should include:
The FBI defines terrorism as "The unlawful use of force against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the citizen population, or any segment thereof in the furtherance of political or social objectives".
Terrorism can occur through the use of guns, bombs, or arson, as well as biological, chemical, radiological and computer (cyber terrorism) means.
