Hurricane Sandy On The Way, Wyckoff Emergency Team Sets Up Facebook Page

The Office of Emergency Management, headed by Wyckoff Police Lt. David Murphy, has created a Facebook page to help keep township residents in the loop.

The township's emergency management team created a Facebook Page they hope will help keep Wyckoff residents informed during Hurricane Sandy — and in the event of other dangerous situations.

Wyckoff Police Lt. David Murphy alerted Patch regarding the page's creation on Friday.

"The Office of Emergency Management ... will be using it in addition to email blasts and the Township website to further get out vital information via the social media," Murphy said.

The page has been used so far to communicate school closings, emergency preparedness updates from the county and state level, and tips and reminders.

According to the info on the new Facebook Page: "The Township of Wyckoff Emergency Management Page is dedicated to keeping the public aware of all critical situations pertaining to our community and will offer information and tips to stay informed, prepared, and safe."
