Thank you to all the staff and first responders who have been hard at work during the course of the remnants of Hurricane Ida. Fire, Police, Public Works, Storm Water Staff and Emergency Management have been working diligently to plan, prepare, respond , rescue and evaluate the damage of this storm for the past 48 hours.

Public works and the storm water team did an outstanding job 24 – 48 hours prior to the storm prepping storm drains and pre staging barricades to our known flooding locations in the township. They were out for the duration of the storm adding barricades and assisting with traffic as needed.

Police, Fire, EMS and Emergency Management did an amazing job planning, documenting and managing resources throughout the storm.

We had minimal emergency incidents and this is accredited to the TEAM effort in preparation for the storm.

A HUGE thank you to our residents for their cooperation in adhering to warnings.

The forecast has not changed much overnight. We would like to encourage those that live in flood prone areas, especially along the Swatara Creek to start taking steps to prepare themselves, thier homes, and thier families for the potential of flooding and needing to evacuate. While the predictions are still showing "minor" flooding, we want you to be prepared for that to change.
