Emergency Management Collection


The Emergency Management collection at the New Jersey State Library is a collection of materials purchased with funds provided by the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM). The NJOEM receives a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to make these funds available. The purpose of this collection is to have materials available to New Jersey citizens, and to county and local emergency managers, government officials, emergency responders, teachers, engineers, and corporate emergency officials in New Jersey, that need to prepare for and manage different types of emergency situations.


The materials purchased for the Emergency Management collection are specifically selected for the use of all New Jersey citizens, therefore all items in this collection circulate. New Jersey residents may borrow items by coming to the New Jersey State Library in person with appropriate identification indicating New Jersey residence, or they may request an item through their local public library and receive the item through an Interlibrary Loan. For more specific information about borrowing, please visit: Get a Library Card.

Collection Policy

New materials are periodically added to the collection. Topics include emergency preparedness, disaster relief, homeland security, weather emergencies, disaster communications, fire prevention, disaster medicine, and special populations.
