Welcome to Upper Macungie Township!


Protecting Our Quality of Life: Police, Fire, EMS


Providing a pro-actively protective environment for all community citizens and property is a leading priority here in Upper Macungie Township.

We honor this commitment to 24/7 safety by strongly supporting the in-township presence of our own community police department, three volunteer fire organizations (Fogelsville Volunteer Fire Co., Goodwill/Trexlertown Fire Co., Upper Macungie Township Station 56) and the region’s leading Emergency Medical Services provider (Cetronia Ambulance Corps).

Upper Macungie Township offers a quality of life well worth protecting…and we do.

We also encourage Upper Macungie Businesses to regularly complete an Emergency Contact Form in the event we need to contact you.  Please remember to update this information whenever you change your contact information (home or work phone or fax number).  Complete and fax to Peter Christ at 610-395-9355.
