Welcome to Parsippany Emergency Mangement - CERT - RACES !

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program helps train people to be better prepared to protect their families and respond to emergency situations in their communities. When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community. CERT training includes disaster preparedness, disaster fire suppression, basic disaster medical operations, and light search and rescue operations. Training consists of 20 hours of instruction and a final exercise.

RACES is the Auxiliary Communications arm of Parsippany Office Of Emergency Management. We serve during town events and major town incidents.    Our mission is to operate and maintain Amateur, Public Safety, and other communication systems, and to perform unique, accurate, and efficient communication services to assist government officials in the protection of life and property during major emergencies and planned events.

I wanted to personally thank our volunteers who continue to answer storm related calls since Tuesday. We are still actively staffing shifts to fill the townships needs as we restore power. Since Tuesday we have answered over 120 calls for various incidents, mostly emergency power and fueling. This takes tremendous coordination, communication and dedication.

I also would like to thank our mutual aid volunteer partners along with all of the departments within the township who have assisted us.

Special thanks to Parsippany OEM/CERT members who have been riding along with us.

Our telecommunications at the county and town level have been extraordinary. I thank you.

Again, thank you to our members who have logged hundreds of hours and sleepless nights to better serve our residents. It is quite impressive.

Hope all are well and keep up the good work.
