Hurricane Joaquin
Update #2
9-30-2015

Dear Residents:

Early Wednesday morning the National Weather Service upgraded Joaquin to a hurricane.  Hurricane Joaquin’s track is still very uncertain and Marlboro’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) continues to monitor the weather conditions. 


This past June my office distributed an email in conjunction with Hurricane Preparedness Week.  That letter can be found in the Storm Updates section of our township website and HERE. Please take a moment to review the information provided by FEMA and Marlboro Township to ensure that your family is prepared for any emergency. 


Joaquin Update #1 provided links to the preparedness information on the Township website.   A copy of that email is HERE.  However it bears repeating that if you have not already done so, please visit our “Communications for Residents” section on the Township Website www.marlboro-nj.gov/resident-communications.html to ensure that your home and cell phones are registered for Police reverse 9-1-1 calls and text message updates. You can also find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/marlborotownship.nj , follow us on Twitter @MarlboroTwp as well as my Facebook page.


The Mayor’s office continues to be in contact with JCP&L. Severe weather increases the likelihood of power outages.  Please take a moment now to visit JCP&L's  website.  You can register to use text messaging to receive alerts and to report outages, download smart phone apps and report an outage on their Facebook page.   We remind you to immediately report downed wires to JCP&L or the Marlboro Division of Police. Never go near a downed power line, even if you think it is no longer carrying electricity.


As always, the Marlboro Police Department is available 24 hours a day at (732) 536-0100. For emergencies, please do not hesitate to call 9-1-1. We will continue to update the public through email, reverse 9-1-1 and social media, as necessary. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance.

Mayor Jon Hornik
