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, 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.
Do you, your company, or your community organization want to donate critical medical supplies?
The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) has created a web portal to accept donations of critical medical supplies such as personal protective equipment (gloves, masks, gowns, etc) and other items. This portal is for use by individuals, corporations or community organizations to make the commonwealth aware of critical medical supplies that are available for donation.
Donations will be distributed to hospitals, medical facilities, and emergency management services across Pennsylvania.
We are simplifying the information we're providing here on the AGREM website. The best information for Chester County is available from the County website at the following web address: https://www.chesco.org/coronavirus
The information provided there is updated daily and contains links to information that is available in several different languages. We will continue posting any information that is more "local" in nature on this site as appropriate or necessary.
