The mission of the Middletown Emergency Management Agency (EMA) is to provide for the safety and security of the citizens of Middletown Borough by preparing, implementing and exercising the Borough’s preparedness plan.
Local Emergency Management
To assure prompt, proper and effective discharge of basic borough responsibilities relating to civil defense and disaster preparedness, operations and recovery, the Middletown Emergency Management Agency is vested with authority and responsibility for emergency management, response and recovery planning within the territorial limits of the Borough of Middletown.
During and after an Incident
The Middletown Emergency Management Agency’s Emergency Operations Center, located in Borough Hall, serves as the center of operations during an emergency to monitor and assess damage as well as deciding what agencies and resources will be needed to respond to the situation. After an emergency, the EMA works with other agencies and organizations to help the community recover from the crisis.
