COVID-19 Update

Free Storm Cleanup Assistance Available

The Montgomery County Department of Public Safety along with neighboring counties that experienced flooding and wind damage, has been working with our Voluntary Agencies Active in Disaster (VOAD) partners to establish the Hurricane Isaias Home Cleanup Hotline to support homeowners in need.

Residents should call 1-844-965-1386 (toll-free) to provide details about the extent of storm-related damages. The information will be shared with volunteers from local disaster relief organizations, community groups, and faith communities who may be able to help.

Call the Hurricane Isaias Home Cleanup Hotline if you need help with these types of services:

  • Cutting fallen trees
  • Removing affected drywall, flooring, and appliances
  • Tarping roofs
  • Mitigating mold

These services are performed by volunteers and will be provided at no cost to the resident. Service is not guaranteed, however, as resources are limited. After providing your information to the Hotline, you may be contacted by a representative from a participating organization who will determine if they are able to help.

Tuesday’s storm unofficially dropped more than six inches of rain in parts of the Township. Despite the rain and high winds, the Township emerged relatively unscathed. Thank you to the Police Department, Public Works Department and the Wissahickon Fire Company for their efforts during the day.

The flooding of some roads is a reminder of the importance of stopping before driving through high water. Crews were forced to help several drivers who attempted to navigate rising waters. This obviously endangers drivers but also risks police and fire. Please remember the best advice is “Turn Around. Don’t Drown.”
