Springdale Borough, Cheswick Borough and Harmar Township
In brief, you should know the following about us: This Agency is responsible for providing outstanding service to the Borough residents by continued training, working with emergency responders in our community, attending meetings regarding emergency management and incident command structure at the federal, state and county levels and networking with other emergency managers from Western Pennsylvania to prepare our community in the event of a major "hot-wash" immediately following the drill to discuss questions, concerns and input from agencies involved.

Our Emergency Operations Center will be staffed in the event of a disaster. Our Emergency Management Staff is monitoring the situation in conjunction with Allegheny County Emergency Services. Our entire staff is on an on-call status for the remainder of Hurricane Sandy. Remember- we now cover Springdale Borough & Harmar Township. If you live in our area and need assistance, call 9-1-1 for EMERGENCIES.

Agency formed in July of 2012 with the merger of Springdale Borough and Harmar Township Emergency Management Agencies, and in April of 2013 Cheswick Borough joined the regionalization. We will serve Springdale Borough and Harmar Township. Our involvement with the local school district will continue. Our office and Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will remain at the Springdale Borough Building- at it's current location. We will continue to utilize this website and former names (Springdale Borough EMA) for the short-term period. We look forward to serving the community!
Allegheny Valley Regional Emergency Management Agency is proud to announce we are the recipient of a $2000 grant from Walmart foundation that was received on August 7th. The grant was given to help the Agency with the purchase of 10 computers that will be used for the final phase of the development of our Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC will be used during all disasters to coordinate all emergency and recovery operations. It will also be used for training emergency responders, police, and citizens on emergency procedures and preparedness. We are proud to work with an organization like Walmart ,who reconizes the importance of commuity involvement and look forward to working with them in the future. We thank the Walmart at the Pittsburgh Mills, and deeply appreciate their help.
On February 4, 2016 Allegheny Valley Regional EMA recieved $5000 grant from the Polish Club in Harwick Pa.
On behalf of our agency, the ellected officials, and citizens of the communities we serve I want to thank the officers of the Club for this kind donation. This will enable us to purchase much needed training equipment and help with other projects we are working on in order to remain the most proactive and highly trained agency around. If it were not for generous organizations like yours we could have never accomplished what we have so far. So thanks again nd good luck to you all in the future.
