Press Release - Hurricane Preparedness!
Attention Neighbors, BHP resident Dolores McElhatton who works for Atlantic County Gov't as a part time librarian at the Egg Harbor City Branch received the following information that may be beneficial to all as we are in the hurricane season.
County Resources Help Residents Prepare for Heat, Hurricanes and More
While we are in hurrican season, there is no better time for residents to review their emergency preparedness plans for themselves, their families and their businesses.
Residents are urged to take this opportunity to check and replenish disaster supply kits, create and/or review family emergency plans including preparations for pets, review evacuation routes and locate contact information for their municipal emergency management offices. All of this information and more is available on the county’s emergency information and resource website at www.ReadyAtlantic.org.
Residents and individuals with properties or businesses in Atlantic County are also strongly encouraged to register with the county’s Community Notification System. Introduced in 2008 the system originally provided emergency alerts to landline telephone numbers only. Since then the system has been upgraded to include cell phone numbers and Voice Over Internet Protocols (VOIP) for those who choose to register them. The system currently includes 205,344 numbers from the Verizon phone system’s 9-1-1 database as well as 6,500 self-registered numbers. The Community Notification System can accommodate a primary and secondary phone number (i.e. home and cell) as well as two email addresses per account.
Residents who are registered through the Atlantic County Community Notification System can also receive direct alerts from the National Weather Service to their cell phones. This important feature helps to keep the public aware of potentially dangerous weather conditions, such as severe heat or storm activity, regardless of time of day or location.

BHP Pet Policy
In accordance with safety requirements, common courtesy, community restrictions, and township ordinances, dogs and pets may not run freely throughout the community. It is essential that each homeowner provide for acceptable containment and restraint of pets within the confines of their own property.
All dogs and pets must be kept leashed and under control when exercising in the common areas of the community and should not be permitted to trespass on private property.
Please always pick up after your pets ! Animal waste contains high concentration of bacteria and disease causing microorganisms that can cause health concerns. Galloway Township requires homeowners to immediately and properly dispose of their pets solid waste from any public or private property. All dog walkers must dispose of their dogs waste (have plastic bag ready) since walking paths (sidewalks) are on public and private property. Dog walkers who use the BHP sidewalks should not allow their pets to urinate or defecate on your neighbors lawns or the grass strip between the sidewalk and the street. Please curb your dogs, or your back yards. The grass strip between the sidewalk and street is maintained by the landscape company and is part of your neighbors lawns. No animals shall be allowed to run loose at any time and owners must keep their subject property free and clear of any waste generated by the animal. Fines will be assessed to homeowners in violation of this policy.
The number of household pets (dogs and/or cats) cannot exceed two (2).
