4/4/2018 - Important Reminder Regarding Downed Wires/Power Outages

The Hamilton Township Office of Emergency Management would like to remind residents of the following.    

  • Downed wires impacting roads, sidewalks, or areas where the public may come in contact with them must be directly reported to the Hamilton Police Division (Non-Emergency Phone Number is 609.581.4000 -or-- in an Emergency dial 9-1-1). 
  • Always avoid downed wires and assume they have electricity running through them/are "live" wires
  • NEVER attempt to report downed wires through social media (Facebook messages/comments, Twitter, etc.), e-mail, or online service requests as these channels are NOT  monitored on a continuous 24 hour a day basis 
  • Telecommunication service outages (i.e. television, internet, phone) must be directly reported to your individual provider(s)
  • All power outages should be reported directly to PSE&G (do NOT assume PSE&G knows power is out for your home)
