Know Your Zone

Know Your Zone is a public education campaign implemented by the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management to inform the residents, businesses and visitors of Monmouth County of the new hurricane evacuation zones and their vulnerability to storm surge. The Know Your Zone campaign was developed in partnership with the municipal emergency management coordinators within the coastal towns and is based on the threat, strength direction and forecasted storm surge of an impending hurricane, nor'easter or other coastal flooding event. The campaign also reflects the National Hurricane Center's (NHC) decision to separate the association of storm surge inundation from the category of storm. Evacuation Zones should not be confused with flood zones. Evacuation zones are based on storm surge values using various hypothetical storm models bases on worst case scenarios. Zones established based on threat strength direction and storm surge. Knowing your zone in advance of a storm is critical to your survival.
