Sussex County’s Division of Emergency Management has the ability to notify all Sussex County residents in the event of an emergency through its Swift911 system. When activated by officials, this automated system calls homes and businesses in the affected area and delivers a recorded message to notify the public about the emergency and what actions they may need to take. The system will be used for the following types of events:

  • missing person alerts
  • emergency evacuations
  • local security and crime alerts
  • weather emergencies
  • hazardous materials events

All landline telephones serviced by Verizon, Embarq and Warwick Valley Telephone (WVT) are already in the system, however, cell phone and some VOIP phone numbers are not. If you would like to provide additional methods of contact, update your information or remove yourself entirely, please utilize the link below. In the event of an emergency, if you have opted to provide additional methods of contact, you will receive multiple notifications.

Register Ready

The state of New Jersey offers a confidential statewide registry for people with disabilities who may need help in the event of a disaster or other emergency. The information is shared with Sussex County’s Division of Emergency Management to help emergency responders locate and safely evacuate people who may find it difficult to help themselves in the event of a major disaster.

Providing information before a disaster allows for better planning and managing of resources during an emergency. Rest assured, your information will be held securely and only used for emergency response and planning.

Anyone in Sussex County who may find it difficult to self-evacuate because of a physical or cognitive limitation, language barrier or lack of transportation—particularly if family, friends, or caregivers are unavailable to help during a crisis—is encouraged to register with New Jersey’s special needs registry.

How to register

Individuals with special needs, as well as their families and/or caregivers, can register online at the state’s web site. In order to complete their online form, you must have JavaScript enabled and you will have to temporarily disable any pop-up blockers you may have working in tandem with your browser application.

Don’t want the hassle? You can also register by downloading and completing the paper registration form. This form may be filled out on your computer, saved to your hard drive and then submitted to the Sussex County Division of Emergency Management. Complete instructions are included on the first page of the form.
