Natural Disaster Emergencies

The best defense against natural emergencies is for each individual to be as prepared as possible.  The problems we expect from natural disasters include:

  • Power failures, possibly for extended periods
  • Road closures
  • Limited availability of food, medicine, or supplies
  • Possible loss of natural gas, unavailability of heating oil

Every household should be prepared to get through at least 3 to 4 days without power, heat and water, and without access to stores. Useful information about being prepared can be found by going to the Crisis-Related Agencies website listed below.  Don’t forget about medication you might require, or the needs of your pets.

The Westtown Emergency Operations Center will be opened if the Commonwealth or Chester County declare a State of Emergency, and/or open their EOCs. The Westtown Supervisors or the Westtown Emergency Management Coordinator can also declare a State of Emergency for Westtown, and we will open our EOC.  Information on the declaration of a State of Emergency will be available on local radio and TV stations.

Once the Westtown EOC has been opened, call the Township Office 610-692-1930 if you need assistance.  If you get no answer, or a recorded message stating that the EOC is not open, call 911.

Most important is to be prepared and be patient.  If you have a life-threatening problem, call 911 immediately, not Westtown Township. Information about Pennsylvania Emergency Preparedness can be obtained at: https://www.ready.pa.gov/

Residents are encouraged to contact county/state/and federal emergency management agencies for additional information:

Rumor Control Hotline:

Pennsylvania has established a 24/7 Rumor Control Hotline (1-800-932-0784), ready to answer your questions.

Suspicious Activity and Terrorist Threats:

Tips or information about suspicious activity of a potentially terrorist nature should be referred to either local law enforcement or the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania State Police Tip Line 1-888-292-1919.  Information on PA Homeland Security can be found here: https://www.dhs.gov/
