Next Week Monday through Friday (May 16th – 20th, 2022) will be North Wildwood’s Annual Preparedness / Awareness Week, a time where all municipal departments review their preparedness for a disaster or emergency event prior to the June 1st start of Hurricane Season. During the week the Office of Emergency Management will be posting information on their Facebook Page on the Municipal Warning Systems (Code Red Emergency Notification System, the 1640 AM Radio Station, and the Warning Sirens) along with other information. During the week on Tuesday, May 17th at 11 AM we will be testing the Flood Siren and on Thursday, May 19th at 11 AM we will be testing the Tornado Siren to familiarize the public with the siren patterns used for the respective warnings. We will be sending messages via the Code Red ENS the day before and on the day of the Siren tests so you know they are a test and not an actual event. More information will be posted on the OEM Facebook page (CLICK HERE). If you don’t have Facebook all the information we will post during the week has been covered here in the past and can be found by scrolling down on this page to “click here for archive notices” which after you click it opens to a page showing all the posts since 2018. As the City is reviewing what to do this week, perhaps, take a few moments of time to review your own preparedness. Do you know what to do if you had to evacuate? Do you know what to do if we have a prolonged outage of electricity? Do you have adequate supplies for a prolonged period of sheltering in place?
