Emergency Plan – Allegheny County Special Needs Registry
Edgeworth Borough recently adopted an updated Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) on August 15, 2017. This EOP would be used during a wide array of emergencies including flooding, chemical spills, or even a terrorist attack. It is important for law enforcement and emergency first responders on both a local and county level to have an accessible data base of residents in Edgeworth who may have a disability and would require assistance during a time of emergency. Allegheny County maintains such a registry. The Special Needs Registry is a voluntary registry of information which assists emergency personnel when responding to a crisis. Those who are interested in voluntarily registering a friend, family member, or other loved one on this registry can do so by visiting Here.
