Berkeley Township Emergency Notification Sign-up
Thank you for your interest in signing up for Berkeley Township's Emergency Notification System. We are proud to offer this new service to the public. An Emergency Notification System, or Reverse 911 as they are sometimes known, gives those in charge of Public Safety a chance to reach out to the public in case of an emergency event. This system, combined with our other emergency alert methods, is designed to get emergency messages to you the public, quickly and effectively. This does not preclude you from calling 911 if you need emergency information; it simply provides an opportunity for us to disseminate critical information to you if and when the need arises. The reason for this form is to gather as many means of contact as you may have, so that in the event of an emergency that affects Berkeley Township, we can notify you in multiple ways.
We maintain a constantly updating database of all land line telephone numbers registered in Berkeley Township. Feel free to list any additional land line phone numbers, however we are most interested in gathering cell phone numbers and email addresses.
If you have a Berkeley Township address (This Includes residents of Holiday City/Silver Ridge, Manitou Park, Pelican Island, South Seaside Park and the Bayville Areas), please provide it in the Street Address field, in the event of a localized emergency your local address will integrate with the notification systems mapping capabilities.
This information will remain in the custody of the Berkeley Township Office of Emergency Management at all times, and will only be used for Emergency Notification purposes.
Please fill-in the form:

Community Response Team training promotes a partnering effort between emergency services and the people they serve. The goal is for emergency personnel to train members of neighborhoods, community organizations, or workplaces in basic response skills. Community Emergency Response Team members are then integrated into the emergency response capability for their area.
If a disastrous event overwhelms or delays the community's emergency response, Community Emergency Response Team members can assist others by applying basic response and organizational skills that they have learned during training. These skills can help save and sustain lives following a disaster until help arrives. These skills can also be utilized during daily emergencies.
This free training takes place in eight separate two or three hour sessions. Whether you want to become a Community Emergency Response Team member or learn the disaster techniques to help yourself and your family, this training will greatly benefit you and your community. If you or your community group is interested or you would like some additional information, please contact our office (732) 914-8966 or visit the website http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/.
