Scott Perry - REDISTRICTING
BRINGS CHANGES TO THE DISTRICT
It continues to be a great privilege representing
you in Harrisburg, and every 10 years, a process called redistricting takes
place which, following the taking of a census, changes the makeup of most, if
not all of the legislative districts in Pennsylvania.
As a result of the 2010 census, the 92nd
Legislative District has changed. I want to thank the people of South
Middleton Township and Mount Holly Springs Borough in Cumberland County for the
honor of serving you, and at this time, I welcome the people of Monroe Township.
In York County, I welcome the people of Warrington Township and the Borough of

BE PREPARED FOR EMERGENCIES
By Julio Mendez, Director York County 911
You never know when an emergency might arise.
More than 234,000 calls were place to York County's 911 center last year.
That equates to approximately one call for every two York County residents.
It is fair to say most callers had no idea when they awoke in the morning they
would be calling 911 later in the day. That's why it's important every
member of our community prepare for emergencies before they happen. As
part of that process, residents should ensure that they know certain information
about the places where they spend the most time. Providing this
information to 911 operators helps them help you.
You should know:
THE TOWNSHIP, BOROUGH OR CITY
FROM WHICH YOU'RE CALLING
YOUR PHONE NUMBER
Many 911 calls come from homes and workplaces, so
it's important to post this information prominently in those locations. In
the confusion of an emergency, it can serve as a resource if you, a family
member, visitor or co-worker needs to call 911. Parents should teach their
children this information and regularly reinforce it, particularly after a move.
It should also be emphasized with friends and older relatives. Of course,
there are times when you or someone else might need to call and won't be able to
provide a dispatcher with this information. That's not a problem.
York County ahs one of the most advanced 911 systems in the nation. Our
operators can trace your call to dispatch the appropriate team of responders.
Any information you can provide helps ensure you get the best response possible.
Every member of the community is encouraged to
fill out an emergency card and post it in a prominent location such as on a
refrigerator, to ensure it's readily available if you or someone else needs to
call 911 from that location. These cards are available in both English and
Spanish. They can be printed from the Internet at
http://www.ycdes.org/index.php/yc911/publiced or they are also
available through our Department of Emergency Services by calling (717)

PennDOT Reminds Homeowners to Prepare
Mailboxes for Winter
PennDOT reminds residents living along
rural state and local roads that now is the time to prepare mailboxes for the
winter months. Snow thrown from plows can easily damage mailboxes that are
Mailboxes are normally placed within the state's legal
right-of-way; however, mailbox damage is the responsibility of the property
If a mailbox is placed as far from the edge of the road as the
carrier can reach from a vehicle and the mailbox is placed on a sturdy support,
it should be able to withstand the force of snow thrown from a plow.
PennDOT offers these tips to help reduce
the risk of mailbox damage:
* Place a 6 to 8 inch
piece of reflective tape on the mailbox to help snow plow operators see it at
* Remove snow from around
the mailbox, but never throw it back onto the road.
* If the mailbox is
located within the legal right-of-way and damage was experienced in the past,
homeowners may want to consider repositioning the mailbox before winter.
Homeowners who have followed these tips in the past have still
experience mailbox damage may wish to consider installing a cantilevered mailbox
support that will swing a mailbox out of harm's way. Visit
www.dot.state.pa.us for a copy of plans
for a cantilever mailbox support.
Contact your local post office for more information about how
to correctly position a mailbox.

Township News for EMA
The Emergency Management Office is available for assistance to
the Township residents in case of an EXTREME loss or event in the Township.
We step in and help when a situation exists that is beyond the scope of the
"normal", for example lengthy power outages, large scale disasters and any event
that would be more extreme in nature than the police department and/or fire
department would be able to handle on their own resources. Tornado and
hurricanes, and wide-spread flooding would be another example.
There is a "Special Assistance Needs" form
Assistance Needs.pdf to be completed. If there
are any changes in household information of which the Township and EMA should be
aware, please complete the updated information. These forms are the
only way we have to be aware of serious medical conditions and provide the name
and phone number for contact persons. Also, if there are property
conditions of which the emergency services organizations should be aware, they
should be listed on the form.
Please send the filled out form to the Township Office via
mail, fax, email
email@example.com, or drop off at the township office for
forwarding to the EMA Coordinator.
Any resident interested in working with EMA, please contact
the Township Office.
Rent – A – Kid
The Rent-A-Kid program, sponsored by the York County
Area Agency on Aging (YCAAA), is a unique, intergenerational program bringing
senior citizens and teenagers together. York County senior citizens, 60 years
of age or older, who need help with household chores, odd jobs, and yard work
are matched with a teenager in their area who can assist. The recommended
payment is $5.00 per hour, but is negotiable depending upon the job.
Don’t wait until the snow is already on the ground!
Arrange for help with your chores BEFORE you need it. Call (717) 771-9103 or
1-800-632-9073 for information on Rent-A-Kid participants in your area.

rainfall and the tremors. If you feel any tremors, please contact him as
