TRENTON MAYOR ERIC JACKSON ASKS CITY RESIDENTS TO
SIGN UP FOR THE CITY’S “EMERGENCY BROADCAST SYSTEM”

 

Trenton, N.J. — Following the recent winter-storm emergency that activated the city’s Emergency Operations Center, Mayor Eric Jackson today encouraged Trenton residents to sign up for the city’s Emergency Broadcast System. The system notifies residents about inclement weather, garbage collection and other important information, as needed, by phoning their landlines and cell phones.

 

“The Emergency Broadcast System communicates important information to city residents regarding regular city operations and city operations in emergency situations. The system conveys information in English and Spanish,” said Mayor Jackson. “Residents can use either their landlines or cell phones to receive important messages, whichever is more convenient.”

 

Signing up to receive messages through the Emergency Broadcast System is easy. Residents can visit our website at trentonnj.org and click on the “City Emergency Broadcast System” link. Existing users can also update their telephone numbers at the site. An e-mail address is required to sign up successfully and is necessary to establish an account so that users can return to the website to update their contact information, if necessary. Personal information is never used for solicitation purposes or shared with third parties, only for official municipal government notifications, such as winter-storm warnings and garbage collection.

 

“We are also exploring adding other languages to the system to expand its capabilities,” noted Mayor Jackson.
