Gettysburg College was mentioned in a March 29 witf article on how local organizations are preparing for high numbers of tourists in Gettysburg this summer.
Eline says emergency personnel, Gettysburg College, and the National Park Service are among those working together to help prevent backlogging. "As we're keeping an eye on where there are traffic issues, we're going to be able to share that information with the emergency responders. Another thing that the fire department here is also planning to do is pre-position units in and around the Gettsyburg area so they're not all coming from one location that could potentially be isolated because of the traffic."
Eline says the borough may reach out to neighboring townships and counties for extra help patrolling areas and emergency equipment.
