Winter Weather Preparation
The Ocean County Sheriff's Office, Office of Emergency Management closely monitors weather systems and the effect it may have on our area.

The following are suggested actions to be taken prior to arrival of a storm:
  • Check battery-powered equipment such as radios and flashlights. Buy extra batteries.
  • Secure outdoor objects that might become caught in the wind.
  • Keep your car fueled should evacuation be necessary.
  • Be aware of where evacuation routes are located.
  • Stock up on non-perishable food items and water.
  • Keep tuned to a local radio or television station for the latest National Weather Service advisories as well as instructions from local officials.
  • Be familiar with the telephone number of your local Office of Emergency Management.

Some suggestions once the storm arrives:
  • When road conditions are poor stay at home if at all possible.
  • If you have to travel give yourself extra time, make sure you have water and other nonperishable food items in the car.
