Somerset County Conference Resources:

After much thought and consideration, the Somerset County Office of Emergency Management has decided to cancel the 2020 Somerset County Emergency Management Conference which was scheduled for June 10th, 2020.

 This was not an easy decision for our office to make since last year’s conference was a very rewarding event; however for the health and safety of our participants, it was a choice we had to make. We look forward to re-evaluating the COVID-19 incident as the year progresses so we can plan for our next Emergency Management Conference.

 Thank you for your continued support throughout this difficult time.

 Stay Safe!
