Cherry Hill Begins Utilizing Reverse 911 System
Cherry Hill has begun sharing services and utilizing Camden County's Reverse 911 Community Notification System as an additional tool to alert residents of important and significant Township messages. The Reverse 911 system allows for rapid telephone notification Township-wide or to specific geographical areas of the Township. The system will be used for important Township alerts only, including but not limited to emergency evacuations, missing person alerts, natural disaster alerts, hazardous material leaks, search and rescue operations, crime prevention, neighborhood emergency incidents, special community notifications and Homeland Security information. Our first phone call was distributed this past Wednesday and informed residents of an imposter alert being disseminated by the Cherry Hill Police Department. The Reverse 911 system will automatically place a call to residential landline telephone numbers within a specific geographic area and will deliver the relevant recorded message. If phone lines are busy, the system will attempt to redial those numbers to make contact. If an answering machine or voicemail system picks up the call, the emergency message will be left on the machine/voicemail. When you get a Reverse 911 call, you will receive specific instructions on what to do, where to go, or how and where to obtain additional information. Should you have any questions, please contact the Mayor’s office at 856-488-7878.

Imposter Scam Alert
Over the past few weeks, the Cherry Hill Police Department has received several reports of people posing as Township employees or public service workers attempting to gain entry into people homes. Before you allow access into your residence make sure you verify the person’s identity as either a Township employee or utility worker. All of these employees should have proper credentials that are displayed upon request. Any questions or concerns of the legitimacy of the request, contact the Mayors office during business hours at 856 488-7878 or the Cherry Hill Police Department anytime at 856 665-1200.

Be Alert, Be Informed: Home Improvement Contractors
Cherry Hill Township wants to make sure our residents know their rights and are not taken advantage of by contractors. Here are a few tips: Always ask for identification, as all door to door sales representatives are required to be licensed by Cherry Hill Township with a Photo ID. Do not let yourself be pressured into signing a contract for repairs. Give yourself time to read and understand the offered contract and then get a second quote. No matter how small the job, make sure you have a written and signed contract. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If your contractor is legitimate, they will not have a problem answering them. For additional tips, visit the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs website at http://www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/psa/. If you question whether the contractor is legitimate or have additional concerns, contact the Mayor’s office during business hours at 856 488-7878 or the Cherry Hill Police Department after hours at 856 665-1200.
