Weather Emergencies

The Township has contracted to provide an emergency notification system, by which you can be notified by your local emergency response team in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts. These may include evacuation notices, bio-terrorism alerts, boil water notices, and missing child reports. You could also be notified of tornado, severe thunderstorm and flash flood warnings issued by the National Weather Service. Sign up here for phone and/or email alerts now!
