Summer in central PA is a great time of year. We hope our residents are enjoying the beautiful weather outside. Be sure to take some time to enjoy a sporting event, eat some ice cream at a local establishment, enjoy a community pool or spend time reuniting with family and friends at a cookout.
For some residents, summer can be a difficult time of year. Air conditioning is not an option for everyone. The weather forecast is hot, followed by several more days of even more heat. EMA wants to make sure that no one suffers from heat exhaustion.
For anyone on a tight budget, Hummelstown Borough Emergency Management Agency (E.M.A.), is offering fans to help keep cool during the heat. To obtain a free fan (no questions asked) , stop by the Hummelstown Borough Municipal Building at 261 Quarry Road on Wednesday July 17 between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM
Bring identification so we can verify you are a Hummelstown Borough resident and you will be provided a new fan, while supplies last. (Limit one per household)
