unacceptable that the so called Madison Emergency Management hotline and office is closed on the weekend. last I checked, the recovery was still ongoing and there are plenty of people in Madison still without power. That office should be staffed 24/7 until all power is restored.

Emergency Ops Center is open call 973-408-8787. The police dept foyer is open for warming and charging, as are all Main St businesses. You should subscribe to the Nixel alerts if you have a cell phone. Text 07940 to 888777. I am absolutely amazed at the fantastic storm response in this town. A thousand thanks to all our administrators, electric crew, and first responders.

WOW! A fantastic job by the Madison Clean-up Crew. The OEM office with frequent updates about what was happening in the way of power restoration was excellent. We are most appreciative, as in last year's storm we lived in Chatham Twp. and could find out nothing about power restoration which was out 7 days.

All fair points but again...why would an Office of Emergency Management stop operating on a weekend and push the burden off to the police who are already overburdened? Its poor policy and poor management.

And by the way, as I noted above, the Emergency Ops Center was NOT open when I called at 10am.
