Connect. Prepare. Protect.

Why prepare?

Disaster can strike quickly and without warning, anytime or anywhere. Local responders may not be able to reach you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere. Your ability to be self-sufficient may be a matter of survival for you and your family.  Take control of your own safety — it can save your life

The Township government has initiated a series of steps to prepare itself and protect its residents against disasters; however, individuals are urged to plan for such situations as school closings, the inability to get to work, or if a family member becomes sick or injured. 

 For additional local information, contact Customer Service, 724-776-4806.

You may select email or text messages, or both. Depending on your cell phone plan, text messaging rates may apply.

In the event of a large-scale emergency, the Township will run an Alert bar across Township webpages; and if practical, information will be posted on the Rt. 19 / 228 Community Sign. Register for Cranberry Connect
