Emergency Management

Lower Swatara Township provides the residents with Police, Fire and Ambulance protection. These services are ready to respond to your emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We take pride in knowing our community is safe all day, every day.

The Lower Swatara Emergency Management Agency integrates with police, fire-rescue, EMS, and public works during major emergencies and disasters to coordinate the multi-agency response. The EMA operates from the municipal Emergency Operations Center at 1499 Spring Garden Drive for major disasters or from a mobile unit for smaller events.


Pennsylvania Consolidated Statues require each political subdivision of the Commonwealth to establish and staff an emergency management agency. The Lower Swatara Township Board of Commissioners has enacted a resolution and developed an Emergency Operations Plan to provide for the protection of persons and property in Lower Swatara Township.
