Such notice shall be in the form of a petition encaptioned "In the matter of................., a minor" and shall include the date and type of placement and the reasons for such placement, which shall include the specific efforts to prevent the placement or the specific situation which the division has documented to establish an exception to the requirement to make reasonable efforts to prevent placement in accordance with section 24 of P.L.1999, c.53 (C.30:4C-11.2).
