In 2012, the municipalities of Wayne Township, Concord Township, Elgin Borough, Venango Township, Amity Township, and City of Corry entered into an Intergovernmental Agreement for Conelway Regional Emergency Management Agency to assume responsibility for response to any natural or man-made disaster emergencies within their geographical areas.
Public safety is a primary responsibility of government and the ultimate responsibility for emergency management preparedness has been thrust upon local government officials by Title 35, the Emergency Management Act.
Emergency Management is not responsible for doing emergency functions, but rather is responsible for coordinating the effortsd of the agencies/organizations that are responsible for these services.
On October 16, 2014, Governor Corbett appointed Lyn Wittmer to serve as the Emergency Management Coordinator for the Conelway Regional Emergency Management Agency (CREMA). Lyn has received the required training & continues to work with the member municipalities to develop emergency prepareedness plans.
