Emergency Cell Phone Calling
In case of an Emergency dial 911 immediately. If possible, call 911 from a landline, but if you are on a cellphone please follow these directions:
- If your phone has GPS location tracking, turn that on (if not on by default) and use your phone’s map app to determine your location. Most all newer cellphones have this function.
- If your phone does not have this function or you don’t know how to use it, be as specific as possible about your location. Identify local intersections, buildings, landmarks or anything else that can help direct First Responders.
- Remain on the line with the 911 Dispatcher until help arrives.
Dennis Township was recently made aware of emails being sent to residents in the name of our tax collector and maybe other officials. These emails are not legitimate and are not being sent from our email system. These emails are spoofing emails – fraudulent emails drafted to appear as if they are being sent by Dennis Township. Dennis Township is conducting an investigation into these emails. We ask residents not to respond to these emails or take any actions requested in the email. Dennis Township will not send emails to residents regarding tax bills. Any questions related to tax bills should be directed to Monica Heim at 609-861-9703.
