No Parking

A friendly reminder from the Office of the Watertown fire Marshal.

A fire lane is defined as a marked lane near a structure that runs along the street. As every driver knows, parking in a fire lane is prohibited at all times in order to grant fire trucks and emergency vehicles unobstructed access to the structure in the event of an emergency. Don't be that person who blocks emergency personnel from doing their job.

For more information please visit:

The Watertown Fire Marshal's Office Facebook Page.

The Watertown Police Department is pleased to announce our recent enrollment in the Everbridge Notification System.

This system will be utilized to communicate rapidly with the members of the public during critical incidents, such as severe weather events, fires, or locations with a heavy police presence. You may receive a text message notification and/or a phone call from the Watertown Police Department advising you of a critical incident in an effort to protect you before, during and after the event itself with specific information and/or instructions on how to proceed. Please take these notifications seriously, as they are only sent when there is potential jeopardy in public safety. In the event you do receive an Everbridge notification please refrain from calling the Watertown Police Department to determine the validity of the notification as our dispatchers are likely to become overcome with an influx of curious inquiries; please call only with information relative to the nature of the incident. This announcement is meant educate the community of the validity of the notifications in advance of receiving a notification. For further information on the Everbridge Notification Systems please refer to the link below:
