EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM   The Township of Neptune has joined Avon-by-the-Sea, and Neptune City in an emergency notification system.   This system has a feature that allows residents to log on and add themselves to the system via their own computer!  The system allows residents to add up to three phone numbers and two email addresses.  You can add your telephone numbers and addresses even if you think you are already listed, as the system recognizes duplications.

Please note that you will need to "agree" to the basic terms and conditions before continuing your registration.    The Police Department no longer refers to the system in print as "REVERSE 911" because this is a copyrighted name and belongs to another division of the same company.


In an emergency, dial 911
