|History of Millville OEM
The Millville Office of Emergency Management basically started in the 1940’s and 1950’s during World War II and the Korean Conflict as what was commonly called Civil Defense Department. It progressed through the war eras until the late 70’s early 80’s when the named changed and became the Office of Emergency Management.
Through the years the department has gone from a single filing cabinet, to a shared desk, to a functional EOC (Emergency Operations Center) located in the police department. Due to much needed space at the police department for technological advancements, the EOC was moved in 2010 to its new and more advanced current home located on the Second floor of the Fire Department located on Buck Street.

|"I am 43 years old and have been a Millville resident all my life. I started in emergency services as a sophomore in high school and have been involved with some type of emergency service for 27 years. I started my emergency services career as an EMT with the Millville rescue squad and eventually moved to firefighting and became a member of Fairton fire Dept and later a member of the Millville fire department. I worked for the Cumberland County 9-1-1 Emergency Communications center as a Senior Public Safety Telecommunicator and Certified Training Officer. For the past 15 years I have worked at the Millville Police department as a Public Safety Telecommunicator, Communications Training Officer, and have also served as the department’s Terminal Agency Coordinator.
I began my career as the City of Millville’s Emergency management Coordinator in 2007 and continue to serve as the coordinator. We are required by the State of New Jersey to have no less than 24 hours of training a year and I strive to exceed that with as much training as I can attend. As an OEM team, my deputies and I have been successful in obtaining numerous grants for equipment and funds to offset cost to the taxpayers and the city. It is my goal as well as the goal of my OEM team to make the City of Millville a safer and more prepared municipality."

| As a lifelong Millville Resident, I felt the need to serve my community and became a volunteer firefighter in 2003. In 2007 I was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant within the volunteer ranks. I was then hired by the City of Millville as a Police Officer in 2008. I served in the Patrol and Traffic Divisions, as a patrolman, until being promoted to Sergeant in 2020.
In 2014, I was brought in to the Emergency Management as a Deputy Coordinator. Since then I have worked with Coordinator Taylor and the other Deputies to help grow and mondernize the Emergency Management Department within the City of Millville, to ensure that we are ready to respond to whatever event may happen. We strive to ensure that all of the citizens of Millville are taken care of in their time of need, and are ready to respond when called upon
