LINCROFT - Gov. Chris Christie got a first-hand look today at FEMA's new joint field office in Lincroft.

The facility will be the hub for aid and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey, housing both FEMA and the Army Corps of Engineers.

As the number of power outages continues to drop, the focus is shifting now to rebuilding efforts, especially along the Shore.

Engineers plan to develop beaches to help block powerful storm surges.

The governor vowed that the Jersey Shore will not be closed down, but will be rebuilt with safety in mind.

FEMA and the state are also planning to reopen the now closed Fort Monmouth, opening it up to as many as 600 displaced families.
