Earthquake
Few people are aware that a major tectonic faultline — the Ramapo Fault system — runs right through Milford, New Jersey. That’s right across the river from Nockamixon Township.

Flood
Flooding on the Delaware River and its tributaries has proven to be the number one natural disaster to befall residents and businesses in Nockamixon Township in the past several years.

Hazardous Materials
With Route 611, the busiest highway in Bucks County running right through the township, and a working railroad immediately across the river, Nockamixon is at risk for experiencing the effects of hazardous material spills. Know how to react quickly and effectively if necessary.

Tornado
In the past decade or so, all of Bucks County has seen an increase in the frequency of severe thunderstorms, including supercells, the variety that produce heavy wind, damaging hail, and — occasionally — even tornadoes. Knowing how to react quickly can save lives.

Wildfire
As a rural, heavily wooded area, Nockamixon Township is at risk for wildfire from lightning, open burning and careless smokers, especially during periods of drought or high wind.

Winter Storms
Though our winters can range from mild to severe, snow and ice can damage structures, cause road closures and vehicular accidents, and cause extended, widespread power outages. How will you weather the next big winter storm?
