07:45 PM January 2016 Blizzard: Evening Report

We will be posting updates each morning and evening, with more information if the situation warrants.

We will try to limit our posts to information pertaining specifically to Bridgeton Township in Bucks County PA and the immediate surrounding area.

There are Met-Ed crews at the Ottsville Fire Company right now, they will be based there for the duration of this event.  Other utilities have put crews on standby with trucks and equipment and will roll as quickly as possible.

The Bucks County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) has indicated that they are ready and have multiple public safety and utility representatives at or soon to arrive at the EOC.

Palisades School District is on standby and ready to operate as a shelter if needed.

If the power is out for a long time for a wide area, we will open the Township building as a charging station for your cell phones.

As the storm intensifies, we may lose access to the internet to update this site. If you have not already done so, sign up right now for Ready Notify PA. http://www.readynotifypa.org/  so you can receive Text Messages  with important emergency information.

We also have a phone number for Bridgeton Township Emergency Management – (484) 823-0047 – you can also send text messages to this number.  Do not use this number for emergencies.  Always call 9-1-1 for emergencies. 

Finally, we would like to ask you to help out. Please feel free to give us situation reports – how deep is the snow where you are? Are there trees down? Are roads plowed or not?  Do you know someone who might need help? Do YOU need help?  Post comments here, or send an email to emc@bridgetontwp.org or give us a call.

Next update is planned for tomorrow morning.
