Fasciano and under the OEM Coordinator are our C.E.R.T members from the Township of Washington.  The purpose of the CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) program is to train volunteers to care for themselves, their family, their neighbors and finally, their community during an emergency. CERT is a volunteer organization which helps to improve the response and preparedness of the community when needed.

Please take the time to learn about emergency preparedness and discuss it with your family or employees. Having a plan is detrimental during an emergency situation and can save lives.


For any alerts or warnings, they will be posted on our website as well as on the Township of Washington Police Departments Twitter account which you can follow at @WashTwpPolice.  We also offer our Swiftreach Alert Program, which is a system that makes phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. All the calls you receive will have the Caller ID of ‘Township of Washington’ or ‘Washington Township Police Department’.  If you wish to sign up for the Swiftreach program please click here and follow the directions.
