For the third year in a row, Quakertown Swamp Amphibian Rescue Partnership will help to provide safe passage for salamanders, frogs and other amphibians across a busy Quakertown road toward the end of winter. When these critters come out of hibernation, they embark on a dangerous trek through the night to get to the vernal pools on the other side of the road in order to breed.
Heritage Conservancy, Richland Township and their local police department, East Rockhill Township and their road crew, and dedicated volunteers will help to monitor the area for signs of an exodus. Since ideal crossing weather consists of temperatures remaining above 38 degrees along with heavy rains, the crossings can be unpredictable and sporadic. When they do begin, Quakertown Swamp Amphibian Rescue Partnership will close the road to ensure their safety.
If you’d like more information on the Quakertown Swamp Amphibian Rescue Partnership or to learn more about the importance of these amphibians, please contact Shannon Fredebaugh at Heritage Conservancy by calling 215-345-7020 ext. 104 or visit HeritageConservancy.org.
Richland Township was successful in obtaining a $713,000 Pennsylvania Community Transportation Initiative Project Grant to install traffic calming measures on Trumbauersville Road in the vicinity of the intersection with Bartram Lane, and to complete the trail system connection between the pedestrian and bike trails in the Brayton Gardens II and Hunter’s Crossing developments. The traffic calming measures that will be constructed will enable the speed limit to be reduced to 35 MPH in this area to create a safe crossing of Trumbauersville Road. It is expected that construction on this project will begin later during 2013. The plan may be viewed by clicking on the link below.

The Bucks County Emergency Management Agency, in partnership with the Bucks County Health Department and the Bucks County Commissioners, has created the Special Needs Registry for individuals who will require assistance during an emergency. Lessons learned from past disasters make it clear that it is never too early to prepare. Advanced planning and preparedness are especially important for people with special needs, which is defined as those individuals who cannot receive, understand or act upon emergency protective orders. During a natural or manmade disaster that requires evacuation, it is important that everyone be prepared to evacuate him or herself to the greatest extent possible. However, there will be those who must rely on emergency responders despite their individual preparedness efforts. In those instances, emergency responders must be able to rapidly identify the location, accessibility issues and mobility requirements of individuals.
The Special Needs Registry is a free, voluntary, and strictly confidential program. It is designed to help those who would have difficulty during an evacuation because of physical or cognitive limitations, language barriers, or lack of transportation. It will help our first responders make the best use of limited time and resources to help those with no other options for evacuation during an emergency. Individuals, or caregivers on their behalf, are able to register electronically by accessing www.specialneedspa.org or by contacting Richland Township or the County’s Emergency Management Agency.
