We are an emergency management organization located in Chester County, Pennsylvania, providing support for the boroughs of Avondale and West Grove, and the Franklin, London Britain, London Grove, New London, and Penn Townships.
We were originally established in 1999 as the The Avon Grove Regional Emergency Management Task Force, acting as a working group designated to help plan for, and respond to, any emergencies that might be triggered when the calendar year changed from 1999 to the year 2000.
Since those initial beginnings, the relationships established with the local municipalities have remained. AGREM changed from a task force to a regular working group, and our initial focus has shifted beyond the Y2K crisis to reflect more current events and needs. Major events such as terroism (9-1-1, Kansas City Federal Building bombing), Hurricane's Katrina and Sandy, the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the severe snowstorms that have impacted the East Coast over the past several years, and even the school shootings at Sandy Hook have all served to highlight the importance of emergency preparedness and planning.
Today, AGREM continues its mission as a recognized Federal and Pennsylvania non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We accept tax-deductible donations to support various programs and activities, and pursue state and federal grants to support our programs as well.
