Town of Hammonton Office of Emergency Management Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Planning Project Information:

Atlantic County Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Planning Project -Natural hazards have the potential to cause property damage, loss of life, economic hardship, and threats to public health and safety. Hazard mitigation measures are the things you do today to be more protected in the future. They are measures taken before a disaster happens to reduce the impact that future disasters will have on people and property in the community. Mitigation reduces the risk of loss and creates a more disaster-resistant and sustainable community. Hazard mitigation measures are essential to breaking the typical disaster cycle of damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.

Any emergency is stressful enough, but when someone may be unaware of the danger, may resist help or not respond to first responders it can be detrimental to the outcome of the incident.

The durable reflective decal can be placed on the door or window of your home to alert firefighters and other first responders that there is an occupant with Autism in the event of an emergency.

It can also go on your vehicle to alert public safety and rescue personnel in the event of a motor vehicle incident.

A private donation has paid for an initial supply of the decals to be distributed at no charge in our community by The Hammonton Office of Emergency Management.

The Autism Alert decals are available at Town Hall, 100 Central Ave., 3rd floor Clerk’s Office during normal business hours or send an email message (subject line “Autism Decal”) with your request to:
