September is National Preparedness Month, Be ReadyLYNDHURST. Download the 2019 Emergency Preparedness Guidebook TODAY!

Dear Neighbor,

National Preparedness Month, is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster and emergency planning now and throughout the year. The 2019 theme is "Prepared, Not Scared."

On behalf of the Lyndhurst Office of Emergency Management, in conjunction with the Lyndhurst Police Department , Fire Department, and Emergency Squad (EMS), we are pleased to share this Emergency Preparedness Guidebook with you, your family, co-workers, neighbors, and friends. This guidebook is the third edition published since first introduced in 2014. This guidebook addresses multiple incidents that have the potential of occurring in our community. Please download or print this information and share it with your family and friends. This guide is available in electronic downloadable PDF format which will be made available on the township’s web site,, as well as the Lyndhurst OEM Facebook, Twitter, Mobile App, and Nixle feeds.

Our hope is that this information helps you prepare for what may be considered by some as the unexpected. Through this information, you can share ideas and establish a dialog with your neighbors. Despite the fact that the Township of Lyndhurst’s Emergency Services and officials plan and train extensively for a variety of emergencies, a disaster can rapidly overwhelm Municipal, County, State, and Federal resources. Therefore, Emergency Management encourages you to plan, prepare, and stay alert. By doing so, you drastically increase your odds of safety and survival during a disaster whether it be of small or large scale. When you are prepared, you are also doing your part in the community by allowing emergency service personnel to direct their resources to those in need of the most emergent assistance.

A key component of emergency preparedness is to stay informed and be aware of what is going on around you. That includes monitoring weather conditions, staying current on local news, and making sure you receive timely information from local government officials.

We encourage you to download our mobile app free of charge, register your information with the county’s reverse 9-1-1 telephone alerting system, Swift 911, by visiting the Bergen County Office of Emergency Management website, This database is confidential and will not be shared. If you haven’t done so, we also urge that you sign up for Nixle text and e-mail alerts which will keep you in constant contact with us leading up to and after an incident. This will enhance your preparedness and expedite the recovery process after.

You can register by texting “07071” to 888- 777 or by visiting Additionally, you can also like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @Lyndhurst NJOEM. 

It is also strongly suggested that you obtain a battery powered crank radio from a local retail store to stay informed on the township’s emergency advisory radio station, 1700 AM. As we learned most recently during Superstom Sandy, all of the above are excellent sources of receiving information until cellular and internet service becomes unavailable.

We thank you for allowing us to help you be prepared and becoming ReadyLYNDHURST.  #ReadyLYNDHURST #PreparedNotScared #readyNJ
