Smart 911 Notifications

In an effort to provide more reliable and effective communications with Residents and Businesses in the borough, the Borough of Closter has implemented Smart 911 with our emergency notification provider Rave Communications.

Smart 911™ is a system designed to make phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. Closter Emergency Management and other departments will use this system to notify citizens by phone of information which may be of of importance to 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, water emergencies, road closures, missing persons, evacuation orders, weather emergencies and other relevant public service announcements.

The Data has been provided by a third party data provider and only includes listed phone numbers in the Borough of Closter. It is important for residents and business owners to provide contact information such as unlisted, unpublished or cell phone numbers. Accurate numbers in the database help to ensure emergency information will be passed on to everyone in a timely manner.

If you would like to provide an alternate number other than your home number you may also do so. 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 'Borough of Closter' or 'Closter Police Department'. Your information will not be provided to any outside agencies or companies.

To update your information please complete this form. If you do not have access to a computer you may call 201-768-5000 to provide information.
