Emergency Notifications


During a major emergency, confusion is usually a result of the inability to communicate simple, yet critical, information to the public. The City has taken many steps to eliminate this obstacle:
  • Messages can be broadcast on with local television and radio stations
  • Information can be posted on the City Website
  • Information can be viewed on Comcast television channel 34.
  • Telephone Notifications; OEM has enhanced its emergency communications operations by installing a Community Notification System.
    • The Community Notification System gives the City the capability to initiate emergency message notifications to citizens of East Orange via their land-line telephones.
    • The system allows the City to make emergency notifications to specific geographically-targeted areas or specific buildings.
