Be ready for an emergency:

·         Sign up for readychesco.org to receive emergency alerts for Wallace Township

·         Register at SMART911.com – sign up to notify 911 responders to medical issues, pet information, special needs, etc.

·         Did you know you can text 911 (if calling isn’t an option)

·         Fill a plastic milk carton with water and put it in your freezer for a source of longer lasting “cold” if the electricity goes off. Use two and relocate one to your refrigerator to make food last longer.

·         Store bottled water, figure a gallon per day per person; don’t forget pets.

·         Buy extra non-perishable food you already eat; “rotate” food and water to avoid waste.

·         When notified of upcoming bad weather, fill your car with gas and your bathtub or kitchen pots with water so you can flush your toilet if you lose electricity.

to patrol Wallace Township

In January 2016, the Wallace and West Brandywine Supervisors were able to announce a joint agreement with regard to police services.  In 2016, that agreement authorized West Brandywine Police Department to provide traffic enforcement in Wallace Township.

In 2018, the Supervisors approved expanding WBPD’s role from just traffic enforcement to regular patrol hours.  West Brandywine Police will now patrol Wallace 24/7. 

 If you have an emergency, call 911 and the police force currently on duty will automatically be dispatched.  

For non emergency calls, you can contact West Brandywine Police Dept at 610-380-8201.
