Elk Township residents can now sign up and keep informed!

Gloucester County uses Gloucester Alert to immediately contact you during a major crisis or emergency. Gloucester Alert delivers important emergency alerts to all of your electronic devices when an incident or emergency occurs. This alert system is your personal connection to real time updates and instructions on where to go, what to do, what not to do and other important information.


Please go to www.gloucesteralert.com to take full advantage of this warning system!

Elk Township is participating with the Gloucester County Office of Emergency Management to update our municipality’s Hazard Mitigation Plan.  The original plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain eligibility for certain federal grants as well as make sure we are working together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent possible.  

If you are interested in learning more about this project, please visit: › Hazard Mitigation Project. The website includes current information and offers you the opportunity to submit any comments or questions.

Update: As part of the on-going update of the Gloucester County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, a Preliminary Municipal Appendix is available for review that addresses natural hazard mitigation issues for our community. The Preliminary Municipal Appendix can be downloaded from http://nj4hmp.com by clicking on “Gloucester County” and then clicking on “Elk Township”. Comments can be submitted via the “Contact Us” page on the website. However, please note that comments must be submitted no later than Wednesday, December 17, 2014.
