In an effort to provide more reliable and effective communications with residents, Bellefonte Borough has implemented Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as our emergency notification provider.
Swift911 is a system designed to make phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. Bellefonte Borough will use this system to notify residents by phone of information regarding you or your property. The system can make thousands of calls in a minute to convey vital information. These messages may include information on floods, fires, water emergencies, road closures, missing persons, evacuation orders, and weather emergencies.
The Swiftreach Network Data has been provided by a third party data provider and only includes listed phone numbers in Bellefonte Borough. It is important for residents and business owners to provide contact information such as unlisted, unpublished or cell phone numbers. Accurate numbers in the database help to ensure emergency information will be passed on to everyone in a timely manner.
If you would like to provide an alternate number other than your home number, you may do so. The alternate phone number would be called if your primary phone number is not answered by a person or answering machine.
All calls you receive will have the caller ID of “Bellefonte Borough.” Your information will not be provided to any outside agencies or companies.
If you do not have access to a computer, you may call 814-355-1501 Ext. 210 to provide information. To sign up please visit https://bellefonte.net/residents/emergency-notification-info-request/
