Dear Resident,

The National Weather Service is tracking Tropical Storm Arthur, the first storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, and has issued a ‘Hazardous Weather Outlook’ for our area beginning Wednesday.  As Marlboro’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) monitors the weather conditions, I want to take this opportunity to remind you to ensure that you and your loved ones are prepared for any weather emergency.   

It bears repeating that having multiple lines of communication between the township and our residents is most important during emergencies.  If you have not done so already, please visit our “Communications for Residents” section on the Township Website www.marlboro-nj.gov/resident-communications and sign up for any or all of the communication options available.  Please register your home and cell phones for Police reverse 9-1-1 calls and text message updates.  Sign up for Township email blasts and find us on Facebook   www.facebook.com/marlborotownship.nj and Twitter @MarlboroTwp as well as my Facebook page.

Please take a moment to locate and review the “Plan and Prepare” brochure sent to your home with the Superstorm Sandy Anniversary letter.   The letter and brochure may also be found here http://www.marlboro-nj.gov/press/Press_Release_102913.html and the brochure is reprinted in the centerfold of the Marlboro 2014 recycling calendar mailed to your home in December for easy access to emergency phone numbers and websites. Check the Township website Storm Updates http://www.marlboro-nj.gov/storm/Storm_updates.html for past preparedness information. 

Please report any power outage directly to JCP&L. You may call JCP&L at 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877), sign up for text message reporting or visit www.facebook.com/JCPandL and click the ‘Report and Outage’ tab. Please visit the JCP&L 24/7 Power Center at www.jcp-l.com  using your smartphone, tablet or computer to report an outage or download the apps. 

The Marlboro Police Department is available 24 hours a day at (732) 536-0100.  For emergencies, please call 9-1-1.  We will continue to update the public through email, reverse 9-1-1 and social media, as necessary.   We are hopeful that the storm will move off the coast but we urge you to be prepared.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance.


Mayor Jon Hornik
