The Swift911 System: The Township uses “SWIFT911” from Swiftreach Networks Inc. to keep our residents & businesses informed in cases of emergency. Now, the system has been expanded for use beyond emergencies. In addition to sending emergency information, we can now send information that is more tailored to our residents’ interests. SWIFT911 is a high-speed notification program that can deliver pre-recorded messages to the entire community via telephone, cell phone, email and text messaging. Since SWIFT911 can dial 60,000 phone numbers per hour, we know the information will get out right away. And in emergencies, receiving relevant information right away can be critical.
In addition, Swift911 now offers a “Hotline,” so if residents miss part of a message they can call the Hotline to hear the entire message again.
