AlertFlorhamPark will allow you to get emergency notifications in any manner you choose, including phone, email, text, or social media, so you can stay informed during major storms or other emergencies taking place in Florham Park or throughout Morris County. Users have the ability to enter multiple addresses located in multiple jurisdictions within a single profile. If you care for a loved one who lives in another Morris County town and want to be notified of issues affecting that person’s municipality, your one registration process will satisfy that need.

AlertFlorhamPark also offers a free Smart911 signup option for county residents, providing a greatly enhanced and potentially lifesaving 9-1-1 emergency call service for anyone who registers for it.

Smart911 is FREE, and your information is secure, accessible only to a 9-1-1 call taker. This service can provide key information to responders that can make your family safer. For example:

  • Address Details: How to access your home, number of bedrooms, location of utility shut-offs, and if you live in a multi-family building;
  • Family Details: Number of residents, ages, photos of children, and your landline and mobile phone numbers;
  • Medical Information: Medical conditions of certain residents, medications taken/required, allergies, mobility of residents, and if special equipment is needed in an emergency;
  • Animals: A list of your pets, service animals and livestock, and their names so responders are aware of them as they enter your home. Also, include the name of your veterinarian;
  • Emergency Contacts: Family members, friends or neighbors to be contacted in case of an emergency;
  • Vehicles: Make, model and license plate number in case of a motor vehicle accident.

Residents can offer as much or as little information to first responders through Smart911 as they wish.

Message from the Chief

It’s part of our Mission to build and nurture relationships within the community in an effort to increase the quality of life within Florham Park.  To that end the Police Department has reached out to several members of the business community to provide Active Shooter/Violent Intruder training to help increase awareness and prepare our citizens in their everyday lives.  Below is a testimonial from a local business who received this training;

“We are thankful to the Florham Park Police Department for supporting and presenting the Violent Intruder Power Point (PP) presentation to Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP personnel.

We reached out to the FP Police Department to preview the PP and schedule a presentation in our office.  We wanted to be proactive and felt it was important to educate our personnel.  Besides safety, another compelling reason to conduct the presentation was the recently held College of Saint Elizabeth’s  Active Shooter drills.  We had to alert personnel of the drill event due to street closures and police activity so we thought it was a good opportunity to share and educate our personnel on how to react in such a situation.”

The Florham Park Police Department is willing to present this training to all members of the community.  If you are part of a Neighborhood Watch Group, business, religious or public entity and feel this information will be helpful to your members please contact my office to schedule a meeting.

I can be reached directly at 973-410-5440. 

Thank you and be safe!!
