Emergency management is an ever-changing field.  No two disasters are alike, and the steps needed to prepare for and respond to them are equally as fluid.  Fresh perspectives and innovative ideas are a necessity in creating a safer, more resilient future for our communities.  That is why the New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Association  is proud to host our Higher Education Challenge—an invitation for our up-and-coming emergency managers to present their insights and solutions into the changing climate of emergency management.

Announcing our 25th Anniversary Conference!

Our first program was run in 1999 as the Hurricane Preparedness Seminar. It was a single day event to promote local issues to coastal area emergency managers hosting approximately two hundred people. Shortly after we expanded to the two-day New Jersey Hurricane Conference.

The events of 9-11-2001 changed our industry and our communities. The conference developed into the New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Conference to meet these changing demands.  Providing a broader range of training and to the first responder community and the private sector emergency preparedness.

For our 25th anniversary we are expecting over 1,500 attendees over five days of training, breakouts, and special events with over 75 vendors supporting our conference.  We look forward to seeing you on the Boardwalk in 2024!
