Winter Storm Preparations

The Swatara Township Police Department would like to advise residents and guests that we are working closely with other Township Departments to plan for the impending winter weather. Our EMA Director is monitoring the situation closely and is keeping all Township Departments updated regularly.

If possible, please try to remove your parked vehicles from the street to assist our Public Works Department when they are out plowing. Fewer cars parked on the streets will make their job a little easier, and a larger portion of the roadway will be cleared of snow and ice.

If there is a fire hydrant in front of your home, please try to clear the snow that accumulates around the hydrant if it is safe and possible to do so. This will really help our Fire Department if they need to respond to the area for fire calls.

Finally, please drive carefully if you need to be out on the road. If possible, try to avoid driving during the storm.

Thank you!
