Who We Are and What We Do

Northwest Regional Highway Safety is part of the health education division at the Erie County Department of Health (ECDH). This project is funded by a grant from PENNDOT which covers a region of 6 counties: Crawford, Erie, Forest, Mercer, Venango and Warren.

Highway Safety partners with police departments and other agencies to provide lending materials, trainings and education to various community groups.


The purpose of this grant is to coordinate comprehensive highway safety education and enforcement for northwestern Pennsylvania.
