13 Dec: Senate Approves Buono Measure To Coordinate Emergency Response Programs

TRENTON – The Senate approved a measure today sponsored by Senator Barbara Buono that would provide for the development of coordinated State and county emergency response plans.

“A well-developed response plan and strong lines of communication between State, county and local authorities are essential in minimizing the impact of any emergency,” said Senator Buono, D-Middlesex. “The best time to examine existing procedures and make sure all jurisdictions are prepared to take action is right now, before any new emergencies may arise. This is not something we can afford to put off any longer.”
