TOWNSHIP NEWS


2019 Road Program
The 2019 paving project for the Township includes the resurfacing of Crop Court, Four-In-Hand Court, Pony Court, Sidesaddle Place, Timberline Trail, Woodhaven Road, and a section of Old Bailey Lane (Twaddell intersection to #332).

The purpose of this notification letter is to let you know that the paving contractor is scheduled to begin work on or about July 15th. Weather conditions may delay the start date, and we will do our best to keep you updated should there be any significant delay. Please sign up for email notifications at the Township website www.thornburytwp.com or like our Facebook page “Thornbury Township, Chester County” for updated information.

This project may create minor travel inconveniences. We encourage you to be mindful of the paving crew and slow down during the project to ensure everybody’s safety. Although minor delays may occur, you will always have access to your home.

It is anticipated that the project will take 2 weeks, subject to weather.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at the Township Building.


Become a Volunteer at Your Local Fire Station

Fire stations across Chester County are in need of volunteers like you who are ready to help save lives and protect property right in their own backyard. That’s why last year the Chester County Fire Chiefs Association launched HelpFightFire.com to help make it easy to understand the many volunteer opportunities available. Plus there’s a volunteer inquiry form you can fill out that will allow members of your local fire station to contact you about your interest in becoming a volunteer and answer any questions you may have.

There are several ways to serve your local station, with open positions that will perfectly match your talents:

Firefighters: As a volunteer firefighter, you’ll learn skills like how to advance a hose line, perform search-and-rescue operations, and position ladders strategically. We’ll give you the training and equipment needed to stay safe at no cost to you..

EMTs: Our volunteer EMTs help save lives by transporting the sick and injured to the hospital. You’ll be there to respond to specialized calls like auto accidents, carbon monoxide alarms and other rescue calls. Again, the training and equipment will be provided for free.

Fire Police: Help keep an emergency situation safe by directing traffic and crowds and providing general assistance to other first responders.

Junior Firefighters: Teens at least 14 years old can gain experience around a fire house as a junior firefighter. You’ll lend a hand and begin fire training that will prepare you to become a full member at 18 years old. Volunteering as a junior firefighter is also a great way to secure community service hours and looks great on a college resume.

Administrative Volunteers: Non-emergency volunteers can also play a huge role. They help teach fire safety, assist in fundraising events, help with bookkeeping, human resources, website maintenance and other responsibilities. Whatever your skill set, we can use it!

By joining our team, you’ll help make us stronger and your community safer. So what are you waiting for? Go to HelpFightFire.com. Volunteer today. Chester County lives depend on it.
