With winter weather in our near future, the Penn Township Emergency Management Agency would like to provide you with valuable information to help you whether the winter weather. In this issue of the Ready PA Monthly, we talk to Jeff Jumper, the State Meteorologist. The State Meteorologist answers questions about winter terms, winter weather alerts, and snow squalls.

Keep in mind, with cold weather here, consider having your chimney cleaned before that first fire in the fireplace. Also, with Thanksgiving right around the corner please take extra caution if you plan on deep frying a turkey. Turkey fryers are one of the leading causes to house fires during the holiday season.


We are looking for individuals and community groups to join our team. If you have an interest in building a safer Penn Township, please contact us.
