Emergency Management

Some important information to keep in mind in the event of an emergency

At the County level:
Public Inquiry phone number: (610) 631-3000

Create a plan for all types of emergencies, to include:

  • Where you will go if you need to leave your home
  • Have supplies for at least 3 days
  • Make sure all household members are aware of the above plans

If you need to call 911, the call taker will ask “what is your emergency?”. Be prepared to provide the address where the emergency is happening, to include the closest cross street(s) or intersection, the phone number from which you are calling, and the Township – not the town – where the emergency is happening.

Always stay away from damaged electric equipment, especially downed power lines and tree limbs that may come into contact with power lines. Call PECO at 1-800-841-4141 to report any downed equipment.
