What is the difference between "Notify Me" and "Emergency Notifications"?
Notify Meis a HanoverTownship.com tool thatallows you to subscribe to email and/or text message notifications when content is added to or updated on our website from the Calendar, News Flash, Job Postings and Alert Center modules.
The Alert Center module, in particular, will send out notifications about Municipal Building closures, Township power outages, and other emergency situations but should not be your primary emergency notification source. This is manually updated by the Administration Department to keep citizens informed but may not be instantaneous.
When you sign-up, you will begin to receive emergency notifications from the Hanover Township Police in conjunction with the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and Morris County. This notification service is called RAVE Mobile Safety System or Alert Hanover.
While the Notify Me Alert Center will give you notifications about some emergencies, it does not replaceRAVE. Smart 9-1-1's RAVE is used by the police department and should be your primary source for quick, urgent emergency notifications.
Using both notification systems will ensure that you get all the notifications you need about Hanover Township.
