Emergency and Event Information Line

 

"With this new information line, callers will be able to obtain valuable information without tying up the telephone lines used for emergencies" said New Paltz Police Lieutenant Steven Osarczuk.

Citizens can now dial (845) 255-7123 around the clock and listen to a recorded announcement. These announcements will vary from emergency road closings, village and town wide emergency incidents to parade routes and community celebrations.

Callers can press 1 for road closures, press 2 for emergency weather conditions and press 3 for community events and announcements.

 

"We ask that all callers looking for advisory or event information call (845) 255-7123 first prior to calling the emergency dispatch telephone lines" Lt. Osarczuk added.

The recording will be updated as needed by on duty personnel and will give callers the most up to date information available.

As always, if you have an emergency in New Paltz, please call (845) 255-1323 or 911.
