There are two easy ways to do this. First, attend one of the Board of Supervisors public meetings (you can find the schedule here), or send a letter to “Attn: Board of Supervisors, 105 Government Center Way, Pocono Pines, PA 18350.” If this is a private matter, please mark the envelope “Confidential.”

1.You can find the form online here. If you would prefer a hard copy, please feel free to stop by our Government Center or give us a call at 570-646-1212.

2.You need a permit because the majority of emergency alarms our emergency personnel respond to are false. Charging a nominal fee for the permit helps mitigate an unnecessary waste of public revenue. This is a one-time fee per owner: you are not charged annually.
