In an effort to improve communications to our resident customers, the Harwich Department of Emergency Management in coordination with the Harwich Water Department, has implemented a Voice Broadcast System. This system will supplement our current communication plans and augment public safety.
The Voice Broadcast uses phone technology to quickly send voice messages to hundreds of residents and/or businesses in a time-sensitive manner. In the event of local disruptions, such as extreme weather conditions, water main breaks, traffic incidents, etc., the system will contact residents with a pre-recorded message with information about the current situation.
In order to successfully provide this valuable service, we ask that you please provide the Harwich Water Department with your primary phone number by using the Online Submission Form.
You may also submit this information by several other means:
It is our intention and hope that every customer be included in the notification database. Answers to Frequently Asked Questions can be found in our Voice Broadcast System FAQs (.pdf). Please feel free to contact the Harwich Water Department at 508-432-0304, if we can assist you with additional information.
The phone numbers you provide are confidential and will only be used by the Town of Harwich Department of Emergency Management & Harwich Water Department.
