Stay Informed: Emergency Alerts
Ways to Stay Informed
In times of emergency, Washington Township will proactively issue alerts and updates by phone to all residential and business addresses.
These pre-recorded alerts utilize the official 911 system, and so are sent to the main phone number associated with each street address.
Several options are available if you would like to also receive emergency alerts to your mobile phone. Here's how to sign up ...
