In the Spring of 2021, Union Township Supervisors began collaborating with lifelong Township resident, Mr. Tanner Smida to introduce PulsePoint to our community. Mr. Smida is a medical student and EMT who introduced PulsePoint to the community at several UT public meetings. PulsePoint is a 911-connected mobile application that works to connect those who are medically trained within the community and qualified responders to medical emergencies where cardiac arrest, or a need for CPR, is suspected. The Board hired Mr. Smida as a part-time intern to move this initiative forward. There is much detailed planning involved with this project, including seeking approval from Washington County EMS services and working with Washington County 911 for program implementation. The Township will keep you posted as new opportunities regarding PulsePoint are created within our community! For more information on PulsePoint in general, please visit https://www.pulsepoint.org/
The Board of Supervisors would like to thank the Elrama Fire Department for helping the Township Road Crew in hanging our Veterans Banners. These banners were part of the Military Banner Program as a service to the American Legion Post 613, which runs the Banners Across America military banner program for Finleyville. Also, a special thank you to Supervisors Breinig and Esken for initiating this effort.
Union Township Supervisors have begun to discuss adding more police services in the Township. In 2017, after a decade of limited shifts, UT Supervisors contracted with Monongahela Police Department for a full-time officer: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to patrol the Township. While the goal for the Township is to have our own Police Department once again, the supervisors believe that adding an extra Monongahela office dedicated to UT during peak times will be a welcomed step in the right direction.
