Borough of Watchung’s Emergency Information System

WPNT 550
Radio 1610 AM

When the power goes out, you can’t get a cell signal, the Internet is down, residents should know they can tune their car radios or battery operated radios to 1610 AM and hear important messages, information, or updates from the Watchung’s Emergency Service Teams. 

In a real emergency, an AM Radio may be the only source of communication between the Borough’s Officials and its residents. The Borough will use this as a means to disseminate information, so please, in the event of an emergency, have fresh batteries available for your radio, sit tight, stay calm, and tune in.
