Aston Township, Delaware County PA

Message from the Aston Township Health Department.

The Aston Township Health department would like to remind all residents to please eliminate any and all stagnate water from your property. Stagnate water attracts insects like mosquitoes that may carry the West Nile Virus. On the Pennsylvania West Nile Control Program Website a product named Bti is recommended for use in controlling the mosquito population. This product which can be found at many Home Improvement stores kills mosquito larvae and is not harmful to people, pets, fish, or plants. For more information about the Pennsylvania West Nile Control Program and Bti, click the link below. 

Attention All Aston Businesses!!!

The Aston Township Board of Commissioners announced at the June meeting that they will be running a trial program to allow banner and flag advertising for businesses in the community. Over the next three months business owners will be allowed to select one week to advertise via banners and flags for their business. The idea is that this will give business owners enough time to plan when they will want to have a major advertising push. Some examples of this are, a new product roll out, an end of the season sale, a back to school sale, a major event coming to town, etc… To start your seven days of banner and flag advertising you will need to contact the Aston Township Code Department at (610) 494-1636 Option 2. They will mark down the dates you will be running your advertisement and set up a reminder to come out and check that all banners and flags have been removed when your week is over. Please remember to keep all banners and flags professional in nature, in good repair, and out of the right away.

Are you Registered and Ready?

The Registry is a planning tool to allow individuals with special needs the opportunity to provide information to local and county emergency response agencies, so emergency responders can better plan to serve them in a disaster.

 

An individual with special needs is someone who will require assistance in excess of that provided to the general public in a time of disaster, particularly in the event that a large scale evacuation is necessary. To sign up, go to www.specialneedspa.org and click on New Users Click Here to Register. A family member or loved one can sign up on behalf of an individual.

 

By signing up for the Registry you will let emergency responders know who you are and what type of need you have. If a disaster occurs in your area, this registry will be used to enhance the efficiency of response agencies to serve those with specific needs. The information collected will be stored securely and will not be available to the public. You will be e-mailed once a year to verify and ensure the information provided is correct and to make any necessary changes. Individual surveys will be archived after one year if they are not verified.

 

If you sign up, it does not mean that you are not prioritized for first consideration or evacuation. In an emergency, the first line of defense is personal preparedness. It is important that all citizens have a personal emergency plan. Visit www.readypa.org for more information
