The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania requires every municipality to establish and maintain an Emergency Management Agency and have an Emergency Management Coordinator. The responsibility of the Emergency Management Coordinator is to maximize the utilization of local resources to prevent, plan for, respond to, and recover from disasters and emergencies.
While you may not think of Plum Borough as a major metropolitan area, we are not exempt from any type of disaster, be it man made or natural. In the past decade our community has been subject to hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, blizzards, and other severe weather as well as large fires, power outages, and even hazardous materials incidents.
Plum Borough's Emergency Management Coordinator is Brian Turpin and his Assistant is Jim Sims.
