Chester County now supports Smart911

Chester County's Department of Aging Services APPRISE Program

Avon Grove Regional Emergency Management (AGREM) Radio system

Smart911 is a free service that allows individuals and families to create a safety profile online which provides key information to Chester County’s 9-1-1 Center. Chester County is the first county in Southeastern PA to provide this service. Completely secure and private, residents control what information they want 9-1-1 and first responders to have in an emergency situation. The safety profile enables faster and more effective emergency response by law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services.

Opioid Epidemic Awareness

This program assists citizens in the "golden hour" of emergency care following a traffic crash when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. To participate, citizens complete an online form, and PennDOT will mail them a Yellow Dot kit. Placing a Yellow Dot decal in your vehicle's rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need. The Yellow Dot program is a cooperative effort between PennDOT, the state departments of Health and Aging, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, first responders, and local law enforcement.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Great American Clean Up. We appreciate your efforts! Here’s a picture of a group of local Scouts who worked hard on Saturday afternoon picking up trash and weeding the trees and flower beds in Crossan Park.  Thanks for your efforts, Scouts!

During a recent Board of Supervisors meeting, noted Township resident Robert Weidenmuller gave an eye-opening and informative presentation concerning the current Opioid Crisis affecting all segments of our society. Robert also provided access to resources that everyone in our Township should be aware of in our area.
