State of New Jersey
Executive Order #51

Governor James J. Florio

This executive order extended Order No. 50 and was rescinded by Order No. 55 (Florio)

WHEREAS, similar weather conditions to those in Atlantic, Cape May, Monmouth and Ocean Counties, which justified the declaration of a limited State of Emergency in Executive Order No. 50 also existed in Cumberland County on January 3 and 4, 1992; and

WHEREAS, together with the conditions which existed in Atlantic, Cape May, Monmouth and Ocean Counties, the conditions in Cumberland County constituted a disaster from a natural cause and continued to pose a threat and endangered the health, safety or resources of the residents of one or more municipality and county of this State; and which was in some parts of the State, and threatened to become, too large in scope to be handled in its entirety by normal municipal operating services; and

WHEREAS, after consultation with and upon the recommendation of State Emergency Management Personnel, on January 4, 1992, I verbally declared that a Limited State of Emergency also existed in Cumberland County on January 3 and 4, 1992, and extended Executive Order No. 50 to encompass Cumberland County; and

WHEREAS, at the time of my verbal declaration of the Limited State of Emergency in Cumberland County, I was unavailable to execute a written Executive Order to extend to Cumberland County Executive Order No. 50, which I issued earlier on January 4, 1992.

THEREFORE, I, JAMES J. FLORIO, Governor of the State of New Jersey, in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of the people in the State of New Jersey, do declare and proclaim that the limited State of Emergency, which I verbally declared on January 4, 1992, extending Executive Order No. 50 to encompass Cumberland County, is hereby memorialized.

This Order shall take effect immediately and shall remain in effect until such time as I determine that an emergency no longer exists.

GIVEN, under my hand and seal this
10th day of January in the Year of
Our Lord, one thousand nine hundred
and ninety-two, and of the Independence
of the United States, the two hundred
and sixteenth.


/s/ James J. Florio
