Sign Up for County-wide Emergency Alerts
Morris County has moved to a new emergency alert system called AlertMorris.
With AlertMorris, you can receive emergency alerts by whatever method of communication you prefer:
- social media
AlertMorris on Social Media
Morris County’s social media alert accounts on Facebook and Twitter, @MCUrgent, also have changed their names to @AlertMorris. Get updates from OEM and multi-jurisdictional emergency alerts through your favorite social media platform!
If you’d already signed up for @MCUrgent, there’s nothing to do – you’ll see @AlertMorris in your Twitter and Facebook feeds. Otherwise, follow @AlertMorris today on Facebook and Twitter!
If you were on Everbridge – Please Re-Register with AlertMorris!
If you were a member of the County’s old notification system, Everbridge, your information was forwarded to AlertMorris.
But we ask that you register again, so we are sure to have captured everyone in the new system.
Visit Morris County’s municipalities page, look for your town’s emergency alerts link, and re-register today!
