Mission Statement

The Township's Emergency Management & Planning Agency [ EMAP ] mission is to develop and maintain a comprehensive plan to prepare for, respond to, and recover from, all types of major emergencies that might occur in the Township.

This is accomplished by working daily to coordinate the cooperation of various Township Departments, Volunteer Units, regional partners, and other organizations that would have a role in any major emergency.

During a major disaster or emergency, response and recovery activities are coordinated from the Township's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) located in the Township building. From the EOC, heads of various departments and agencies work in a unified command to respond to the emergency.

Residents can obtain additional information by tuning to Comcast -Willow Grove Channel 43, for important information and instructions.
