Bucks County and surrounding counties provide a Community Alert System to immediately contact you during a major crisis or emergency on all your devices including email, cell phone, pager and smartphone. To register go to www.readyregion.org.

Reflective Numbers Reminder: Make Sure That Emergency Responders Can Find You
Help Emergency Responders find you FAST! When an emergency responder has difficulty locating an address, they lose valuable time. Minutes can mean the difference between life and death for a family member or the complete loss of your home or barn to fire. Make sure you have properly sized reflective street numbers on your house or business. The numbers must be placed at a conspicuous location at the end of your driveway. If your dwelling or business is located close to the road then the numbers should be located so that they can be seen easily from the road. These requirements are in place so that first responders can quickly locate you and your family in the case of an emergency.

To help meet these requirements, you can install your own 4 inch reflective numbers on a contrasting background or the Department of Public Works can provide a compliant reflective sign for a small fee of $10.00. If you have any questions, please contact us at 610-294-9154 or email Doug Skelton, Public Works Director, at dskelton@tinicumbucks.org

Emergency Evacuation Assistance - Special Needs Registry
The Special Needs Registry is a free, voluntary, and strictly confidential program designed to help those who would have difficulty during an evacuation due to physical or cognitive limitations, language barriers, or lack of transportation. Developed by the Bucks County Emergency Management Agency, in partnership with the Bucks County Health Department and the County Commissioners, it will help first responders make the best use of limited time and resources to help those with no other options for evacuation during an emergency. Individuals (or caregivers on their behalf) are able to resister electronically by accessing www.specialneedspa.org or contacting their municipal emergency management coordinator or county EMA office. Numerous communities, civic, faith-based, medical, and non-profit organizations are also helping to register people with special needs.
