Big Changes are coming to Spring Run Park

Spring Run ParkAs if you needed another reason to look forward to Spring, the Township’s Park and Recreation Department has recently made big changes to our Spring Run Park. The construction of new playground equipment was completed in February and will be ready for use this spring. 

Spring Run Park is one of 10 public parks maintained by Uwchlan Township. We also have two passive parks (Baird Park and Jones Pond). For more information on Uwchlan Township Parks and the amenities they offer, Click Here. To rent a pavilion in one of the Township parks you must be a Township resident. Please call 610-363-9450 to schedule pavilion use.

Pothole Season

A pothole develops when water seeps below the road through small cracks in the pavement surface. As the water repeatedly freezes and thaws due to temperature fluctuations, a cavity forms below the surface and larger cracks develop, which destroys the strength of the pavement.

Uwchlan Township residents can report potholes on Township roads online by Clicking Here.

Potholes and other roadway concerns on state roads can be reported by calling 1-800-FIX-ROAD or visiting www.penndot.gov and clicking on “Submit Roadway Feedback.” When reporting a pothole to PADOT, motorists should be as specific as possible and include the state route number, county, municipality, street name and familiar landmarks.

Uwchlan Township Fire Marshall: Spring Tips

My Post - 2019-03-15T142701.018

Often called the invisible killer, carbon monoxide (CO) is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel can be sources of carbon monoxide. Read the following tips from the National fire Protection Association on how to avoid issues with carbon monoxide.

  • Install CO Alarms in a central location outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home (or where required by law). 
  • Choose a CO alarm that is listed by a qualified testing laboratory.
  • Test CO alarms at least once a month and replace them according to manufacturers instructions.
  • If you need to warm a vehicle, remove it from the garage immediately after starting it. Do not run a vehicle or other fueled engine or motor indoors, even if garage doors are open.
  • A generator should used in a well-ventilated location outdoors, away from windows, door and vent openings. 
  • When using a fireplace, open the flu for adequate ventilation.

Uwchlan Township Ambulance

Uwchlan Township Ambulance will be offering the following training opportunities in the upcoming months. More information can be found by visiting www.station87.com or emailing training@station87.com.

CPR

Uwchlan Ambulance Corps believes that it is essential for everyone to know how to do CPR and operate an AED, this is why UAC offers FREE CPR / AED classes to the community. During the class, students will learn to recognize a cardiac emergency or a stroke emergency and provide the proper care. The course follows the American Safety and Health Institute curriculum and is designed for individuals who do not work in the healthcare field but have a desire to learn CPR. Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a certification card good for 2 years. CPR training will be offered this spring on May 2, 2019. 

The Uwchlan Ambulance also offers Community First Aid courses where students learn personal safety, bleeding control, splinting, basic treatment of medical emergencies, and basic information gathering. Students are also taught how to work with incoming EMS providers and how basic first aid fits into the chain of survival. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will receive an ASHI Basic First Aid certification card, valid for 2 years. Community First Aide training will be offered this spring on June 6, 2019.
