**THE SAFEST CITIES IN PENNSYLVANIA 2017**

SPRING TOWNSHIP RANKED NO. 4!!

 

Pennsylvania has some of the safest cities in the country and look who checked in at number four in the entire state of Pennsylvania!!  With a population of 7,612 people, Spring Township only had One Violent Crime reported and 23 property Crimes making Spring Township, Centre County as a very safe place to live.  Much of our reported crime comes from internet or phone scams, theft of credit card or identity theft which is all generated from outside our area.  We must all remain vigilant.  For a crime to occur, just two things need to happen; Someone has the desire to commit the crime and they are given the opportunity to commit it.  Your job is to reduce the opportunity by practicing good crime prevention tips.  We know there will always be someone out there with the desire to take what you got.  The Supervisors and Staff of Spring Township are proud to be ranked as one of the safest cities in Pennsylvania and would like to thank YOU the residents as well as our Police Department in helping make Spring Township a safe place to live, work and enjoy raising a family.

HELP TAKE A BITE OUT OF LYME

 

Pennsylvania has led the nation in confirmed cases of Lyme disease for three straight years, and for the first time, deer ticks have been found in all of its 67 counties, the state Department of Health reports.

 

Lyme disease is called the "THE GREAT IMITATOR" because its symptoms mimic many other diseases.  For instance, patients with Lyme disease are frequently misdiagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis and various psychiatric illnesses, including depression. 

 

The best defense again tick borne illness is to avoid contact with ticks in the first place, but when that's not possible, take the following steps - know where ticks live (near the ground, in leaf litter, grasses, bushes and fallen logs) and dress defensively - wear shoes, sock, long pants and long sleeves and tie back long hair and wear a hat.  Light colored clothing can help you spot ticks!  Use repellent on exposed skin and periodically inspect your clothing and skin for ticks!

PA ONE CALL

 

Spring Township Encourages Pennsylvania Residents to Dial 8-1-1

Before Digging to avoid hitting underground electrical cables

and other utility installations.

Homeowners and contractors should contact 8-1-1 three days before beginning a job to be connected to the Pennsylvania One Call Center, which then will notify the appropriate utility companies about the work being planned. Professional locators are then sent to the requested digging site to mark the approximate locations of underground lines with flags, paint or both. Every digging project even something as simple as installing a mailbox, building a deck or planting a tree warrants a call to Pennsylvania 8-1-1 before the first shovelful of dirt is turned. Waiting to start a project until lines are located and marked makes good sense, because striking a single line can lead to injury, cause outages, and result in costly repairs or fines.
