WAYNE, NJ - To accompany his announcement of the signed State of Emergency Proclamation, Acting Wayne Police Chief Jack McNiff wrote this letter to the people of Wayne Township:

The Wayne Township Office of Emergency Management, in conjunction with Mayor Christopher P. Vergano, has issued a State of Emergency for Wayne Township in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic.  This particular declaration enhances the township’s ability to operate at an optimal level of preparedness, while ensuring appropriate allocation of, and access to, resources, supplies, and manpower. This declaration also allows the Office of Emergency Management, under the direction of Captain Daniel Daly, to spearhead a united and resilient team of township leaders to safeguard the needs of this great community.

Mayor Vergano, along with the Wayne Township Council, is steadfast in his commitment to keeping the residents and visitors of Wayne Township safe.  While fear and confusion may permeate cities and towns around the world, Wayne Township remains resolute and unyielding in its commitment to the people we serve.   As a unified community, we will emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever.
