Emergency Management has come to the forefront since September 11, 2001. Our township constantly updates our Emergency Operation Manual and continues to search for ways to enhance our Emergency Management program. The township's Emergency Management system would be utilized if there were a natural disaster or manmade disaster to occur within our township. In 2013, the Township and Strausstown Borough signed an agreement to create one Joint Emergency Management Agency.
Current Joint Emergency Management Agency:
Shirley Adam, Upper Tulpehocken Township Resident
Dwain Schlappich, Strausstown Borough Council Member
Joint Emergency Management Coordinator
Emergency Management Deputies
Robert Deisemann, Upper Tulpehocken Township
Dwain Schlappich, Strausstown Borough
