Each area of New Jersey carries different potential risks, as well as cost of living expenses, making New Jersey a small state with a wide range of salaries for those working in emergency management services. After the hurricane that hit the state in 2012, those working in this field received a substantial increase in salary to ensure the state would be more prepared if another disaster such as this hit, and devastated, the area. This increase in salary raised some emergency workers salaries by as much as 15 percent of the current amount, according to the New Jersey Emergency Management Association. This provided an increase that covered the additional steps that had to be taken to safeguard the state against a future disaster.

The information shown in these tables was furnished by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and represents salary data for both emergency management directors and hazardous materials removal workers in New Jersey’s major cities.
