The Borough of Seaside Park, located on the Barnegat Barrier Island in Ocean County, New Jersey, was incorporated in 1898. Seaside Park is a small town of only 0.77 square miles with a year-round population of just over 2,200 residents. With almost two miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean, the borough’s main industry is summer tourism. Seaside Park is bordered on the north by the Borough of Seaside Heights and its amusement arcades, rides and boardwalk. To the south is South Seaside Park, which is an unincorporated section of Berkeley Township, and Island Beach State Park.

Seaside Park is located across the Barnegat Bay from Toms River, the county seat of Ocean County. It is easily reached by Route 37 from the west (Garden State Parkway exit 82 or Route 70 to Route 37 east) or Route 35 from the north (Garden State Parkway exit 98, Route 34 east to Route 35 south).

Public Safety Officials Encourage Residents to Sign Up For Local Emergency Notifications To Be Better Prepared for an Emergency

Borough of Seaside Park, NJ, September 18, 2023 – Public safety officials in Seaside Park
today announced that the Rave Emergency Alert System is now available to all residents,
replacing the previous Swiftreach Reverse 911 system. Rave Emergency Alert System is a free
service that allows individuals to receive notifications sent from state and local authorities to stay
informed on potentially hazardous situations involving weather, traffic, and other emergencies.


The switch to the Rave Emergency Alert System allows residents to receive phone, text, and
email alerts and answer poll questions that will give Seaside Park officials critical information
during emergencies. Individuals who are signed up for alerts will receive reliable information
about them during critical situations, including tailored updates based on their specific needs and
geographic location.

Individuals who were previously signed up for Swiftreach Reverse 911 will be automatically
enrolled in the Rave Emergency Alert System but are encouraged to sign up to the Rave
Emergency Alert System to add additional and updated information to the new platform to
ensure accuracy. Residents and travelers to Seaside Park who were not previously signed up for
Swiftreach Reverse 911 should sign up for free at to receive timely and
actionable emergency alerts via email, text, or voice message. They can also identify when and
how they are alerted and communicated with before, during, and after emergencies.

Rave Emergency Alert System strengthens Seaside Park officials’ ability to communicate with
residents when it matters most. The service allows for critical communication with the public
and provides individuals with the information needed to stay safe or take precautions during
hazardous or emergency situations.

Rave Emergency Alert System is trusted by thousands of institutions, including state and local
authorities, businesses, and educational institutions. The Rave Emergency Alert System sends
millions of messages daily during critical situations such as severe weather.

Community members are encouraged to sign up for the Rave Emergency Alert System and input
or update their information and notification preferences today at
