Delaware County Heat Assistance Info & Links

Summer officially began on June 21 and the National Weather Service is calling for dangerously hot conditions across our region, with a heat advisory in place and heat index values up to 102 degrees.

Delaware County Council wants residents to know that the county’s Heat Plan is in place. Both the Office of Services for the Aging (COSA) and the county Office of Adult and Family Services offer assistance to elderly and vulnerable residents throughout the summer.
“We all love summer, but it’s important for our residents, particularly the elderly, young children and those with health challenges to say cool, stay hydrated and stay informed,” said Delaware County Council Chairman John P. McBlain. “The fact is that heat is dangerous, and it can kill, or cause heat stroke or heat exhaustion.”

Residents are urged to visit the county’s website to read the 2018 Heat Plan and learn about the resources the county provides. Residents should take precautions during heat waves and high humidity, to check in with the elderly and disabled family members and neighbors who are at greater risk for heat-related illnesses.

Township History

Lower Chichester Township was settled in 1679, and incorporated as a township in 1682. It became a first class township in 1918. The original township was named after Chichester, an ancient city in the county of Sussex, England. That city was formerly called Cissancester, that is, the city of Cissa, because it was built by Cissa, the King of the South Saxons.
