If you are planning on burning any kind of structure, the Board of Supervisors request that you contact both the Sugarcreek Fire Department (724-526-5433) and the Non-Emergency 911 (724-548-3225) and notify them of your plans. The Fire Department may be willing to be available to supervise any intended burning of structures, brush piles, etc. The Board of Supervisors are requesting this act due to several instances where an intentional fire has been called into 911 and the fire departments from various areas are dispatched, leaving other areas prone if there is a structure fire with people still in the burning building while the crews are responding to the intentional fire. The Board of Supervisors "Thank You" in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
Due to recent changes involving the Red Cross, Sugarcreek Township is looking for volunteers. In the event of an emergency, Sugarcreek Township Volunteer Fire Department is the designated emergency center. With the recent changes it is now the responsibility of the Township to provide man power to the center. There is a sign-up sheet located at the Township building. You can also call and inform the secretary that you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the emergency center.
