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.

Chester County Emergency Operations Centers will be opened if the Commonwealth or Chester County declares a State of Emergency. The Thornbury Township Supervisors or the Thornbury Township Emergency Management Coordinator may also declare a State of Emergency for Thornbury Township.

Most important is to be prepared and be patient.  If you have a life-threatening problem, dial 911 .
