Sign Up for Emergency Alerts from Aberdeen and Matawan

Both municipalities have an emergency alert system in place. Make sure they have your contact information.

When Hurricane Sandy whipped through Monmouth County, Matawan and Aberdeen residents were left without power, with damaged landlines and with minimal cell phone service.

With a winter storm quickly approaching the Bayshore, residents are encouraged to sign up for the emergency notification system in either Aberdeen or Matawan with their home phone, cell phone and email address to help increase their ability to receive vital information.

The notification system allows emergency personnel and government officials to alert residents about possible dangers through telephone calls and email notifications.

In addition to road closures, severe weather and power outages the alert system can be used at any point in time for other reasons officials see fit, such as child abductions or other crimes. 

Here is a link to Aberdeen Township's CodeRED alert system.

Matawan Borough's Swift 911 alert system can be accessed by typing (or copying and pasting) the following URL into your web browser:

http://64.106.243.185/matawan/Swift%20911/

You may unsubscribe from the service at any point by returning to the respective websites and following the instructions there.

The emergency alert system operates through phone calls, text messages and emails and does not require or ask for access to you on social media. Since many people are on Facebook, we included several local pages for them as an extra source of information.
