CHATHAM, NJ - Rutgers University, the Center for Government Services, announced that Chatham Borough was one of three recipients of a certificate of special recognition for producing an innovative program.
"We received that certificate for our Emergency Guide, which went out to all residents," Robert Falzarano, borough administrator said. "I'm very proud to have received that notice."
The Emergency Guide, mailed to all residents, is a 25-page booklet that details important phone numbers and step-by-step instructions about what to do in an emergency. The booklet was inspired by Superstorm Sandy. It also contains information on how to prepare for many weather-related emergencies, including tornadoes and earthquakes.
