Warming Centers

If an extreme situation should occur, like the winter of 2010 when people were snowed in and the electricity was off for several days in parts of the community, there are several things you need to know about getting help.

  1. There will always be police on duty and ready to help you.
  2. The road crews will be out in force to clear the roads.
  3. All 3 Volunteer Fire Companines will be open, assuming they have power, to be used as warming centers.
  4. The Township Building will also be open to serve as a warming center.
