NOTICE – CHANGE IN ELECTION POLLING SITE

The Pennsylvania State primary election has been moved to Tuesday, June 2.  Registered voters who have signed up for either a mail-in or absentee ballot do not need to file new applications despite the change in the primary election date.  Per Chester County Voter Services, due to a lack of poll workers, the polling places for West Sadsbury Township has been combined with Sadsbury North and Sadsbury South at:

POMEROY/KEYSTONE VALLEY FIREHOUSE
1918 VALLEY ROAD or 4 BELEVEDERE AVENUE
POMEROY, PA 19367

Chester County is providing the maximum level of personal protection equipment for every precinct, to ensure the safety of both poll workers and the members of the public who are exercising their right to vote. The personal protection equipment includes masks, gloves and sanitation kits for poll workers, procedures to maintain social distancing while signing-in and while voting, and Plexiglas shields to protect both workers and voters.

The change is at the directive of Chester County Voter Services due to a lack of poll workers for West Sadsbury Township.

There are no horse tie-up facilities at the facility and parking is limited – so please allow for extra time to vote.

 Recycling Economics Alert

Please wash the non-paper materials you recycle. Only recycle the items on the Recycle Right Flyer which can be found under the Recycling tab. CONTAMINATION is the issue. When recyclables are clean and separated from trash correctly, there is a market for those items. Only the items shown on the flyer can be recycled. The cost of recycling has risen dramatically and will affect your bottom line.  WHEN IN DOUBT, THROW IT OUT !

Volunteer Firefighter And Ambulance Services Crisis

How to Become a Volunteer at Your Local Fire Station

Fire stations across Chester County are in need of volunteers like you who are ready to help save lives and protect property right in their own backyard. That’s why last year the Chester County Fire Chiefs Association launched HelpFightFire.com to help make it easy to understand the many volunteer opportunities available. Plus there’s a volunteer inquiry form you can fill out that will allow members of your local fire station to contact you about your interest in becoming a volunteer and answer any questions you may have.

There are several ways to serve your local station, with open positions that will perfectly match your talents:

Firefighters: As a volunteer firefighter, you’ll learn skills like how to advance a hose line, perform search-and-rescue operations, and position ladders strategically. We’ll give you the training and equipment needed to stay safe at no cost to you.

EMTs: Our volunteer EMTs help save lives by transporting the sick and injured to the hospital. You’ll be there to respond to specialized calls like auto accidents, carbon monoxide alarms and other rescue calls. Again, the training and equipment will be provided for free.

Fire Police: Help keep an emergency situation safe by directing traffic and crowds and providing general assistance to other first responders.

Junior Firefighters: Teens at least 14 years old can gain experience around a fire house as a junior firefighter. You’ll lend a hand and begin fire training that will prepare you to become a full member at 18 years old. Volunteering as a junior firefighter is also a great way to secure community service hours and looks great on a college resume.

Administrative Volunteers: Non-emergency volunteers can also play a huge role. They help teach fire safety, assist in fundraising events, help with bookkeeping, human resources, website maintenance and other responsibilities. Whatever your skill set, we can use it!

By joining our team, you’ll help make us stronger and your community safer. So what are you waiting for? Go to HelpFightFire.com. Volunteer today. Chester County lives depend on it.
