About Us

The Lower Macungie Township Emergency Management Organization (LMT EMO) is a group of volunteers who provide, at the township level, coordinated emergency management services governed by Title 35 - the Emergency Services Code. Each political subdivision in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is directed and authorized to establish a local Emergency Services Agency. The township currently is complying with this directive and is planning on providing stronger capabilities in the future.

Emergency Management Coordinator

Although significant assistance is provided by Lehigh County Emergency Management, the Governor has appointed an Emergency Management Coordinator for our township at the recommendation of the Board of Commissioners. The current coordinator is Ms. Barbara Ferri, she is responsible for the overall supervision of the activities of the LMT EMO. Her phone number is 610-966-4343, ext. 171.

Although natural disasters, emergencies, or unexpected attacks cannot be controlled, it is the objective of the Lower Macungie Emergency Management Organization  to be prepared and take action to protect the families in the township. The Emergency Operations Center coordinates and assists activities of emergency responders in the field at the site of an emergency or disaster. If you are interested in volunteering, visit our Boards and Commissions page to find out how.
