We would like to wish our co-workers, friends, and colleagues working in the field of Emergency Medical Services a safe and happy #EMSWeek. Neptune Township EMS is made up of over 150 dedicated EMS professionals, both volunteer and paid. We also work closely with MONOC - New Jersey's Hospital Service Corporation and their hardworking paramedics. All of these professionals from various background come together in Neptune Township for the single, critical purpose of providing quality Emergency Medical Services to our residents and visitors. Just like Police Officers and Firefighters, these individuals give up nights and weekends with their families, often spending their free time away from their primary occupation volunteering as an EMT or paramedic. They spend countless hours in training to ensure they can provide our community with the high-quality care that our residents have come to expect from our emergency medical personnel. Many of these dedicated professionals also volunteer with specialty teams such as the ANSWER Team, Neptune Township Special Operations Rescue, Neptune Township Office of Emergency Management, the NJ EMS Task Force, and many other surrounding towns and agencies.

The Neptune Township Police Department would like to recognize those who make up Neptune Township EMS including our EMTs, Public Safety Officers, Shark River Hills First Aid Squad, Inc, Hamilton First Aid, Neptune First Aid Squad, and the Ocean Grove First Aid Squad. We are honored to work alongside you to serve the residents of this great community, and encourage our residents and visitors to take the time to show their appreciation and #ThankAnEMT this week!

Severe Thunderstorms Possible Thursday Afternoon and Evening

Thunderstorms, possibly severe, will begin to impact the entire state this afternoon into this evening. The storm will have two rounds, one in the mid-afternoon and one later into the evening. Each of the rounds of storms brings the possibility of damaging gusts of wind (nearing 60mph) and heavy rain which may lead to downed trees and power lines. Be ready for the possibility of power outages and hazardous driving. The biggest threat from the storms will be in eastern PA and western NJ but the storms are possible over the entire area. Coastal flooding is not expected, but flash flooding is possible if the storms bring heavy rainfall to our area. Be aware of pooling on the roads in low-lying areas.

If you're planning on beginning your Memorial Day weekend travel tonight, be ready for extremely hazardous conditions on the roads during the storms.
