You will receive 21 hours of FREE disaster preparedness training. This program is overseen by our OEM Coordinator, Chief of Police Eric Danielson. Linda Grinthal will be assembling and leading the team. Pick up an application form at the municipal building, or contact Linda at 973-579-7382 text or phone, or LSG2@PTD.net.

Pool Notice
PLEASE BE ADVISED: Any pool that holds 24 inches of water or greater requires zoning and construction permits, even blow-up pools and temporary pools. Pools require both a building and an electrical permit. The electrical installation to a pool is unique in the electrical code and a whole chapter is dedicated to the wiring. Pools also require a barrier, which is a minimum of 48 inches in height, with access to the pool through a self-closing/self-latching gate. Everything associated with the barrier around a pool is regulated.

Please check with the construction department before purchase of your pool if you have any questions. Any resident with an open pool permit must have final inspections from the town before using the pool. Pools that are in use without final inspection will be subject to violations and penalties.
