In Monmouth County Friday morning Freeholders and the Office of Emergency Management announced the signing of an emergency declaration to grant the county access to additional resources.

"It gives us the access to county facilities, actives the staff in the Monmouth County Emergency Operations Center and it utilizes county employees where needed including assignments outside of their normal work locations," Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone said at a press conference.

Those outside normal work locations may include assisting in the Emergency Management Operations Center.

"I want to commend the Freeholder Board for declaring the County State of Emergency which will allow our Emergency Management team to move assets, purchase equipment, enter into mutual aid and deploy as needed, things that we need to do around the county," Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden said.

The resources in the Emergency Operations Center include the County Health Department, Prosecutors Office, EMS Task Force and the OEM team.
