Communication Is Important
We know that timely communication to residents during emergencies is difficult. Text messaging has proven to be one of the most reliable modes during extended power outages. Get alerted about emergencies and other important community news by signing up for one of our Notification Systems. In order to stay informed in the event of an emergency, it is best to sign up for both NIXLE and the Everbridge Notification System (which replaced the former Rapid Notify System) as long as you do not mind redundant notifications.
High Bridge Police deliver messages through a system called NIXLE. You can register for local communications or see previous messages at this website.
Nixle is a community information service dedicated to helping you stay connected to the information that matters most to you depending on your physical location. You stay connected to the Police Department, your children’s schools, your local community agencies and organizations, as well as important information from other locations throughout the country that are relevant to you. Information is immediately available over your cell phone by text message, by email, and over the web.
To sign up, please visit the Nixle website.
Everbridge Notification System
The County Everbridge notification system enables the Borough or County to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons, and evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods. Registered participants will receive time-sensitive messages wherever specified during the registration process, such as home, cell, or business phone, email, text messages, hearing-impaired receiving devices, and more. You pick where; you pick how.
Individuals with disabilities who need assistance can register by calling the Hunterdon Helpline at 908.735.4357 or 1.800.272.4630.
IMPORTANT: Once you provide your phone numbers and email during the registration process, you MUST enter contact preferences in order to receive emergency and/or community alerts. To sign up, visit the Hunterdon County website or the Everbridge website.
