I would like to thank all the members for there time and dedication for all they did in 2015.
Happy New Year,
Residents and Drivers if you see a fire hose laying on the roadway or even possibly blocking your path of travel, please don’t just drive over it! It’s not there to inconvenience you! There is a big reason it’s there! That is the lifeline for firefighters on the fire ground and could determine weather the property in question is damaged, burned to the ground or even worse a firefighter injured or killed! Please stop and think! Too many fire hoses in Penn Hills and surrounding areas have been damaged in recent months due to this behavior. You WILL be cited and fined!

The Arson Dog program was cut soon after the investigators filed a suit against Allegheny County for overtime pay. This may or may not have anything to do with the program being discontinued, but it just seems unusual. We need to get this program reinstated so we can save lives.
