In an effort to provide more reliable and effective communications with citizens, Macungie Borough has implemented Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as our emergency notification provider.
Swift911 is a notification program with the capability of delivering recorded warnings to the entire community, via telephone or TTY (teletypewriter) or text to the Borough or specific areas to notify citizens by phone of information regarding you or your property. The system can make thousands of calls in a minute to convey vital information which may include water emergencies, weather emergencies or for sharing important information.
It is important for residents and business owners to provide contact information such as unlisted, unpublished or cell phone numbers. Accurate numbers in the database help to ensure emergency information will be passed on to everyone in a timely manner.
If you would like to provide an alternate number other than your home number you may also do so. The alternate phone number would be called if your primary phone number is not answered by a person or answering machine.
All calls you receive will have the caller ID of "Macungie Borough". Your information will not be provided to any outside agencies or companies.
