Newtown Homeowners and Businesses with Central Station Alarm Systems
Newtown Township and Newtown Borough advise that all homeowners and businesses with alarm systems, monitored by a central station alarm service, contact their respective alarm companies and have them record your municipality (Newtown Township or Newtown Borough). This information should be given when reporting an alarm to the county dispatch center. This will also prevent any unnecessary delays in emergency responses.
As a home or business owner and as an alarm subscriber, you have the right to ensure that you have the optimum response to the correct location. Often alarm companies use the postal address without knowing the proper municipality. Many postal addresses (zip codes) serve several municipalities. It is imperative that both you and your alarm company know what municipality your home or business is located within to ensure a timely response by emergency responders.
Any questions regarding this information, please call Newtown Emergency Services Department at (215) 968-2800 x 255.
