We encourage all our residents to enroll in Jefferson Township's Honeywell Instant Alert system to receive emergency notifications regarding road closures, power outages, services available during disasters, etc. This proved invaluable during Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Residents can choose what type of notification they would like to receive, including email, text message, voice message or landland line notification. We encourage residents to select the text message notification at a minimum.
Residents can enroll by logging into the Township web site at then click on Honeywell Instant Alert, you will also be able to sign up for Recreation Department email notifications for Township sponsored events and Water/Sewer Utility notifications.
This service is no charge to Jefferson Township residents. For residents unable to access a computer to enroll, please call Town Hall at (973) 697-1500, and you will be put in touch with the Township's Citizens Emergency Response Team (CERT) to assist you with enrollment. You must use a Jefferson Township address when registering.
