Residents Can Now Add Cell Numbers to Emergency Communications System

Prior to Hurricane Sandy, the system only accepted land lines

Lacey Township’s emergency communications system is now accepting cellular and Internet-based telephone numbers, a feature that was not available prior to Hurricane Sandy.

Capt. David Paprota is encouraging residents who did not receive Lacey Township Police Department's automated telephone advisories before the superstorm to call dispatch to have their telephone number added to the database.

“The database currently consists of Verizon land-line numbers and Comcast telephone numbers,” he said in an email. “The system is geographically based, so it doesn’t account for cellular telephones and some Internet-based phone systems.”

Upon receiving information from residents, dispatch will log the data under a special code within the computer system. Paprota will then forward the information to the contracted vendor to have the numbers officially added to the database, he said.

Residents who would like to have their information added, should call dispatch at 609-693-6636 and press 0 at the prompt or email CaptPaprota@LaceyTownship.org. Residents will need to provide their first and last name, street address and a telephone number.
