North Plainfield Alert System: Sign Up

When we issue a notification about a potential safety hazard or community concern, you will receive a message via the voice or text communication methods that you have registered. You may be requested to confirm that you have received the message and you will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that particular notification. If you do not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach you at all of the contact paths that you have registered. For example, you can specify a neighbor or family member of an elderly parent be notified if the parent does not confirm receipt of the message.

First, you must create an account and add your contact and location information into the Alert Program System. All information you provide will be kept strictly confidential. The link below this section will provide you with the registration page.

While registering for the service you will have the option to select which notifications you would like to receive. The categories from above should be selected now to ensure you are receiving the appropriate notifications. After registering you can always change your profile notifications and contact information.
