The Swift911 System

The Township uses “Swift911” from Swiftreach Networks Inc. to keep our residents and businesses informed in cases of emergency. Now, the system has been expanded for use beyond emergencies. In addition to sending emergency information, we can now send information that is more tailored to our residents’ interests. Swift911 is a high-speed notification program that can deliver pre-recorded messages to the entire community via telephone, cell phone, email and text messaging. Since Swift911 can dial 60,000 phone numbers per hour, we know the information will get out right away. And in emergencies, receiving relevant information right away can be critical.

In addition, Swift911 now offers a “Hotline,” so if residents miss part of a message they can call the Hotline to hear the entire message again. The Swift911 hotline number is 973-577-6452.

Benefits of an Account

The Swift911system uses a publicly available list of phone numbers for both residents and businesses. However:

  • Cell phone numbers and email addresses are not in the system.
  • Some phone numbers are not in the system.
  • Text messages and emails will not be sent unless you select that option within the system.
  • You can tailor the types of non-emergency messages you receive.

You can add or remove your phone numbers and emails from the system online. Sign in to the Swift911 System, or create an account and add your cell phone numbers and email addresses. When you sign in, you can also manage your account and choose to receive information on the topics that interest you.
