of New Jersey
WHEREAS, Executive Order No. 111 (2008) was issued on August 31, 2008, declaring a State of Emergency for the specific purpose of activating the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (“EMAC”) (N.J.S.A. 38A:20-4) to coordinate multi-state mutual aid to the states of Louisiana and Mississippi to assist in responding to Hurricane Gustav [and to prevent the uncoordinated deployment of emergency personnel and delivery of emergency services that could endanger the health, safety, and resources of the citizens of New Jersey by dangerously depleting the supply of essential materials and services]; and
WHEREAS, the severity of conditions necessitating such assistance under EMAC has eased; and
WHEREAS, the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management has advised that the emergency personnel provided by the State in response to an EMAC request from the State of Louisiana have returned to the State;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, JON S. CORZINE, Governor of the State of New Jersey, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and by the Statutes of this State, do hereby ORDER and DIRECT:
- The State of Emergency declared in Executive Order No. 111 (2008) is terminated effective immediately.
GIVEN, under my hand and seal this
