Our group consists of Emergency Management officials from the listed communities in Eastern Montgomery County. We meet informally every two months to discuss common emergency management issues.
While our communities represent only 5% of the land area and 20% of the municipalities in Montgomery County, over 300,000 people, or 40% of the county’s population reside within our jurisdictions. Since most of our communities are contiguous, our commitment is to work together as partners in all Emergency Management issues and incidents.
Recognized as an outstanding example of a successful partnership, the group received the 2002 Governor’s Award For Excellence in Local Government. The International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) in their December 2002 newsletter also recognized the group’s activities.
Most meetings are held at the Abington Township Public Safety Training Center, 2200 Florey Lane, Roslyn, PA 19001. The Center is located at the dead end of Florey Lane, off Easton Road, just south of Edge Hill Road.
