Emergency Notification System - EPA Mandate

Reserve Township is required by the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) to establish an Emergency Notification System (ENS). Reserve Township has contracted the services of Global Connect for a Community Alerting System that may be used to notify all residents of Reserve in the event of an emergency.

The Reserve Township Community Alerting System is an automated system that calls homes and businesses to notify them about serious emergencies or notifications. The Alerting system will also direct you to take specific actions during an emergency. It is similar to the systems used by school districts to notify parents of events. There is also an online form to allow you to enter any additional phone numbers where you want to be notified (such as cell phone numbers).
