Captain Wieners appointed to head Office of Emergency Management

PARSIPPANY — At the Council meeting of Tuesday, April 3, the Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Council voted unanimously to approve Mayor Michael Soriano’s appointment of Captain Jay Wieners as Director of the Office of Emergency Management, effective immediately.

OEM’s mission is to protect the community from large scale emergencies and disasters and

  • Identify and mitigate potential threats
  • Prepare plans to deal with various disasters
  • Coordinate and respond to disasters
  • Coordinate recovery efforts following a disaster

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program helps train people to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations in their communities. When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community. CERT training includes disaster preparedness, disaster fire suppression, basic disaster medical operations, and light search and rescue operations. Training consists of 20 hours of instruction and a final exercise.
