Winter Weather Alert

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for our area from 7pm Tuesday to 3am Thursday. A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency. The latest road conditions can be obtained by calling 5-1-1.

Clearing the Roads

The Public Works Department takes great pride in executing snow removal operations. The plows will generally make an initial sweep through neighborhoods to give access to emergency vehicles. They will then return to complete the plowing by widening the roads as much as they can. Residents can do their part to make snow removal a smooth success. No vehicles are to be parked on roadways or cul-de-sacs from the onset of the snow until the roads have been completely cleared.

If you have concerns during the storm, and the offices are closed, please call 610-647-1440, the non-emergency Police number. The officers will be able to get in touch with the Public Works Department to address the concerns. 

Clearing the Sidewalks

It is the responsibility of the homeowner to keep sidewalks clear of snow and debris. Residents are reminded to remove all snow and ice from their sidewalks within 24 hours after the cease of the snowfall. Be safe when shoveling, dress warmly and take breaks. Snow is heavy and the cold weather might make you feel like you aren't working that hard.

Power Outage

Power Outages

The heavy snow and wind gusts could cause power outages in the Township. Please call your electric provider (not 9-1-1) to report a power outage. To report downed power lines and outages to PECO, visit www.peco.com/outages or call 1-800-841-4141.

To prepare for the event of a power outage make sure you have some supplies on hand, including: water, food, warm blankets. flashlights with extra batteries, and a first aid kit.

Many Willistown Residents have generators to keep the lights on during a blackout. As a reminder you should never use a generator inside to warm the home. Generators emit carbon dioxide which can be deadly if inhaled.
