This is the website for AGREM, Incorporated, also known as Avon Grove Regional Emergency Management.  We are an emergency management organization located in Chester County,map icon Pennsylvania providing support for the boroughs of Avondale and West Grove, and the nearby townships of Penn, New London, Franklin, and London Britain.

We encourage you to review our site to learn more about our organization, and what we do for the area we cover.  If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer, or even just attend a meeting or two to see what we're all about, we encourage you to do so.

Our site is also about informing you, the public, about emergency management and both personal and business preparedness for disasters, be they natural or man-made.  Given the importance of weather, we have placed critical information and graphics related to weather on our homepage to provide you with quick access to this information.  Our weather page has additional information, so we encourage you to visit it as well.

We are a non-profit organization, and our website is frequently changed or updated by volunteers.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for our visitors, as we strive to provide the most recent information available to you.
