SWIFTREACH911 EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION

In May 2009, Pennsylvania passed new notification regulations for which all public water suppliers were required to comply by May 2010.

In order to comply with the Tier 1 Notification regulations (a Tier 1 emergency event is one that could cause adverse health effects as a result of short-term exposure), WTMA has contracted with SwiftReach911. They provide telephonic messaging capable of delivering water emergency notifications to all of our customers within hours. Should a water emergency occur, we will also be able to alert you quickly when a problem has been corrected.

Recent trends have many people abandoning their land lines or using unpublished phone numbers. We need your assistance by providing us with a telephone number so we can contact you in the event of an emergency. Please notify us of any change in your contact phone number by: 

              1) calling WTMA at (717)627-2379

                                        OR

              2) emailing us at wtma@warwicktownship.org 

 

Semi-annual tests of the SwiftReach911 system are conducted in January and July of each year. When you receive the message, you DO NOT need to contact WTMA, it is only a test. Depending on the length of some voicemail greetings and/or voicemail setup, the message may be cut off or absent altogether.
