Township of Fairfield Emergency Notification

In an effort to provide more reliable and effective communications with citizens, Fairfield Emergency Management  has implemented Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as our emergency notification provider.

Swift911™ is a system designed to make phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. Fairfield Emergency Management , Fairfield Police Department and other departments will use this system to notify citizens by phone of important information regarding you or your property. The system can make thousands of calls in a minute to convey vital information. These messages may include information on floods, fires, water emergencies, road closures, missing persons, evacuation orders, and weather emergencies.

The Swiftreach Network Data has been provided by a third party data provider and includes land line telephone numbers in the Township of Fairfield. It is important for residents and business owners to provide contact information such as alternate phone numbers or cell phone numbers or if preferred, the system is also capable of notifying citizens of emergencies through email, text messages or a pager. Accurate numbers in the database help to ensure, but can not guarantee, that emergency information will be passed on to everyone in a timely manner.

The alternate phone number would be called if your primary phone number is not answered by a person or answering machine.

All calls you receive will have the caller ID of “Fairfield Police 973-227-1400.”

To update your information please complete this form. If you do not have access to a computer you may call 973-882-2735 to provide information.
