Reflective Numbers Reminder: Make Sure That Emergency Responders Can Find You - FAST!
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 easily 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 and install 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 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 because of 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 enables first responders to make the best use of limited time and resources when assisting those with no other options for evacuation during an emergency. Individuals, or caregivers on their behalf, can resister online at www.specialneedspa.org or contact the county EMA. Residents of Tinicum can contact Tinicum Township Emergency Management at 610-294-9154.

Ensure Your Safety By Confirming Your Municipality
Bucks County 9-1-1 advises all alarm system subscribers to contact their respective alarm companies and have them record your specific municipality. This will prevent any unnecessary delays in emergency response. If you need help determining which municipality you live or work in, go to the Bucks County website's municipality page at: http://www.buckscounty.org/livingandworking/municipalities
