A tiered coastal evacuation plan, KNOW YOUR ZONE, identifies specific coastal evacuation zones (A, B, C and D) which helps emergency management officials target evacuation orders to those areas that are at the most risk, based upon threat, strength, direction and forecasted storm surge. The public outreach and educational program, Know Your Zone, is designed to educate residents, businesses and visitors on the coastal evacuation zone in which they live, work or vacation.
Not to be confused with flood zones, which are insurance designations and building codes determined by the National Flood Insurance Plan, the tiered system creates 4 distinct evacuations zones A, B, C, & D and will allow for a clearer and more decisive messaging, when evacuations are needed.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office, Monmouth OEM | Tags: Deputy Freeholder Director Serena DiMaso, KNOW YOUR ZONE, Mike Oppegaard, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden, New Jersey, Office of Emergency Management, Storm Preparedness | 1 Comment »
