The Emergency Evacuation Assistance Program tries to identify a family member that may need extra help in getting out of their home during fire emergencies.
These family members may be infants, young children, or elderly persons with medical conditions, learning disabilities, or some other physical handicap; such as being wheel chair or oxygen dependent, working against their immediate evacuation from the home. Rescue of these family members that are incapacitated is of the highest priority to the Fire Department, and valuable seconds can be saved in a rescue if the department knows the location of these family members in the home.

If you have any questions about registering a family member for this program, please email the Fire Department, or call 973-326-7435.
