Welcome!

The Borough of Seaside Park, located on the Barnegat Barrier Island in Ocean County, New Jersey, was incorporated in 1898. Seaside Park is a small town of only 0.77 square miles with a year-round population of just over 2,200 residents. With almost two miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean, the borough’s main industry is summer tourism. Seaside Park is bordered on the north by the Borough of Seaside Heights and its amusement arcades, rides and boardwalk. To the south is South Seaside Park, which is an unincorporated section of Berkeley Township, and Island Beach State Park.

Seaside Park is located across the Barnegat Bay from Toms River, the county seat of Ocean County. It is easily reached by Route 37 from the west (Garden State Parkway exit 82 or Route 70 to Route 37 east) or Route 35 from the north (Garden State Parkway exit 98, Route 34 east to Route 35 south).

The Ocean County Health Department is providing free potassium iodide (KI) pills to people who live or work within a 10-mile radius of the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station. The free pills are being offered at four convenient locations throughout the county or at the Ocean County Health Department. “KI is being offered as a preparedness measure and not in response to any imminent danger or threat. The tablets are being offered to those living or working in these areas: Barnegat Light, Barnegat Township, Beachwood, Beach Haven, Berkeley Township, Toms River, Harvey Cedars, Island Heights, Lacey Township, Long Beach Township, Pine Beach, Ocean Township (Waretown), Ocean Gate, Seaside Park, Ship Bottom, South Toms River, Stafford, and Surf City,” said Ocean County Freeholder Deputy Director Gerry P. Little, Liaison to the Ocean County Board of Health.

Health Department officials are asking residents to check their current supply to identify if their pills are due to expire in March 2017. Residents with pills expected to expire may bring their old pills and trade them in for new ones. Daniel E. Regenye, OCHD Public Health Coordinator, said, “Potassium iodide, an ingredient found in table salt, can provide protection for the thyroid gland from radioactive iodine and can reduce the risk of thyroid cancer after a nuclear emergency. If this should occur, public health officials would tell you when to take the KI tablet. Only one dose is recommended, more could increase the risk of side effects.”

Four sites, including dates, and times, have been set up for this distribution:

Berkeley Township, Central Regional High School (East Entrance)

509 Forest Hills Parkway

Bayville, New Jersey

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 4PM – 7PM

 

Lacey Township – Lacey Township Community Center

101 North Main Street

In addition to these four sites, KI pills will also be distributed at the Ocean County Health Department at 175 Sunset Avenue, Toms River during the hours of 9AM until 4PM.

Residents who wish to receive KI tablets must bring some type of identification to show that they live or work within the 10 mile Emergency Planning Zone (EPZ) area, such as driver’s license, property tax record, utility bill, employee ID card, paycheck stub. Additionally, one family member can pick up tablets for all members of the family. All KI sites will distribute fact sheets which include dosage and any other applicable information.
