EMERGENCY NOTIFICATIONS SYSTEM

AlertMorris has been rolled out by the Hanover Township Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the Morris County OEM.  AlertMorris works to better inform a dispatcher as to your particular information during an emergency call, information that you might not be able to give under duress.  AlertMorris also serves as a notification system to you for potential weather, power and other emergencies.  Visit morriscountynj.gov/about/municipalities to begin your registration.

 

CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS

We are coming into that time of year where Furnaces are being used more frequently.  If you have any Propane of Natural Gas Fired appliances in your home, or if you use a wood stove or fireplace, you should be acutely aware of Carbon Monoxide.  You should have a Carbon Monoxide Detector installed in your home and should understand its use and what to do in the event of an Alarm.  Any time a Carbon Monoxide Alarm alerts, it is should be viewed as an indication of Carbon Monoxide (CO).  Co is an odorless gas, known as a silent killer.  If your alarm goes off Call 9-1-1 immediately.  Get everyone out of the house and into a safe environment.  Fire personnel will check your home for the presence of CO utilizing specialized meters.  Please visit FEMA's site for more information.  For non-emergent questions please don't hesitate to call us at (973) 267-5659 Extension 179.

 

PORTABLE GENERATOR SAFETY

We are approaching that time of the year where power outages might normally be expected.  If you are thinking about using a portable generator for electricity during such an event, please take a moment to read the Red Cross paperwork on generators.  As always, if you have any questions at all regarding safe operations, and we can assist, please call the Fire Station at (973) 267-5659.  If you have any concern, or think you have been or are being exposed to Carbon Monoxide, please call 9-1-1 immediately.  Please stay safe always.
