Town Emergency Messages


TownSealoysterbayTown of Oyster Bay residents are reminded to register for emergency notifications from the town, sent out through the SWIFT911 service.

“The town’s SWIFT911 system has proven instrumental in the last few years in distributing emergency notifications to residents,” said the supervisor. “Through our SWIFT911 notifications, the town is able to communicate effectively to our residents before, during and after storms, with important information such as safety tips, program and activity changes.”

The system is key in events such as Hurricane Sandy and Tropical Storm Irene, as well as during the recent harsh winters faced by local communities.

Residents are encouraged to register more than just their primary number with the service, in case of an event such as Hurricane Sandy, which left thousands without access to their landlines.

“One of the primary benefits of the SWIFT911 system is that if residents register their cell phone numbers with the service, they will still receive the automated robo-calls that the town would send out, with critical information,” said Venditto.

To register, go to the town’s website,, and click on the SWIFT911 link or on the right hand side of the homepage. If you do not have access to an Internet connection, written requests to be added may be sent to the Town of Oyster Bay Department of Public Safety, 150 Miller Place, Syosset, New York 11791.

Additionally, if you are already on the list, and would like to remove yourself, you may do so in the same manner.

All the calls received by residents will have the Caller ID of the Town of Oyster Bay. For more information about the program, contact the town’s Department of Public Safety at 516-677-5350.
