Local Non-Profit Organization Helps with the Development of Emergency Training Facilities

When not busy building homes including projects such as Athertyn at Haverford Reserve, The Pohlig Companies' very own Todd Pohlig lends his expertise to the Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC).  The council has been helping businesses grow in the region for over fifty years.  Todd has been involved with the organization since 1997 and serves on the Board of Directors.  He also participates on the Redevelopment Sub-Committee dedicated to the revitalization of southern U. S. Route 1 to further enhance the economic growth of that area of Chester County.

Recently, the CCEDC has been involved in the development of an emergency training facility in Coatesville, PA.  Although, Chester County has benefited from much advancement, it currently does not have a facility to train first-responders so they have to travel to other counties for their training.  That will all change with the help of the CCEDC, Arcelor Mittal steel who donated the land for the center, and the Brandywine Health Foundation who also donated $600,000 towards the project.

The CCEDC is located in Eagleview Corporate Center and offers state-of-the-art training and conference facilities designed for the development of local towns.  The CCEDC is partially funded by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Community and Economic Development.
