Dear Downe Township Resident:

This advisement has been received from the Cumberland County Office of Emergency Management and is being distributed by the Downe Township Office of Emergency Management.

The Downe Township Municipal building will be open for those residents who do not have an alternate place to shelter during this timeframe. 

Please be advised – if you do not evacuate and you have an emergency during this timeframe, emergency services may not be able to reach you.
