Starting Wednesday, April 29th and every Wednesday thereafter, the Borough of Atlantic Highlands will honor first responders, essential employees, healthcare workers and all of those working day and night to make sure residents stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic with a special blast of the emergency siren at 7:00 pm. All residents are encouraged to head outside, stand on their porches, or open a window to clap, cheer, shout, bang pots, blow horns and make as much noise as they can to show our teams you appreciate their work.

Be sure to practice social distancing. We’re all in this together



In accordance with Executive Order No. 133 and 157 Atlantic Highlands will be re-opening certain parks and recreation areas.  Playgrounds, tennis courts, skatepark and basketball courts in the harbor and in neighborhood pocket parks will open.  The Bayshore / Henry Hudson Trail remains open.  We continue to ask that you walk to the trail as parking in the harbor is not encouraged and will be very limited as per the Governors Order.  

As New Jersey makes continued progress in its fight against COVID-19, it is appropriate to ensure that ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS residents can safely enjoy outdoor recreation, with reasonable restrictions that limit the spread of COVID-19, as a way to enhance physical and mental health, while maintaining the overall social distancing and mitigation requirements in place to protect the health, safety, and welfare of residents.  

We ask that you use caution, not fear as we’re all in this together !

A message from the Atlantic Highlands Police Department:

When a crisis affects the Borough of Atlantic Highlands, Municipal and Emergency Management Officials must be able to reach residents instantly with warnings, information, and updates. In order to ensure that residents can be contacted quickly and effectively, the Borough of Atlantic Highlands uses Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as its Emergency Notification service provider.

Swift911 in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls (along with an email and/or text if you desire) to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. All the calls that you receive will have the caller ID listed as Borough of Atlantic Highlands or AHNJ for text messages.

Whether residents need to be informed of fire hydrant testing, a water main break, approaching storm, State emergencies, or other crisis, the emergency notification system is the most efficient way to reach our residents with news.
