Swatara Township lies within the 10 mile Emergency Planning Zone required by federal law. Because of this, the dedicated volunteers that we have are constantly training, evaluating resources, and establishing plans. This is all to prepare for any kind of emergency or disaster that could affect our citizens.
Swatara Township EMA and other agencies across the region are federally evaluated every 2 years . These exercises are done to test us, our plans, resources and personnel to make sure we are the best we can be for our community.
