Morris County has moved to a new emergency alert system called AlertMorris. In our towns, it is called AlertChester.
With AlertChester, you can receive emergency alerts by email, text, phone, or whichever method of communication you prefer.

If you were a member of the County’s old notification system, Everbridge, your information was forwarded to AlertChester. But we ask that you register again, so we are sure to have captured everyone in the new system. Registered users will receive periodic e-mails from Smart911 to update their contact information.

Chester Police media alert accounts on Facebook and Twitter are Chester Police NJ and @ChesterPoliceNJ.
