Upper Saddle River NJ, the Upper Saddle River Police urge everyone  to build an emergency kit containing basic household items. Following a disaster, people may find themselves without outside assistance for several days. Constructing and maintaining a kit stocked with needed supplies will allow for the care of family members and pets in case of an emergency.
