Fox Chapel hosts first responders’ open house

Fox Chapel Mayor Alex Scott is inviting residents to a meet and greet with the borough’s emergency personnel on Sept. 15.

“This can be a time to thank our volunteer fire department and police for the extensive job they did related to the July floods,” Scott said. “These are the people, along with the public works department, who put in many overtime hours to help local citizens and begin the needed cleanup and repair.”

Heavy storms earlier this summer sent emergency crews scrambling to rescue stranded motorists from flooding on Fox Chapel Road, Squaw Run and Field Club Road, while downed trees made it difficult to navigate other streets like Hunt Road.

“Meet Your First Responders” will be 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the municipal building, 401 Fox Chapel Road.

Fire trucks, police vehicles and ambulance equipment will be on display, Scott said.

The borough’s K-9 officer, Falco, will be on-hand with handler, Officer Rob Katich. Overflow parking is available at Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church, at the intersection of Field Club and Fox Chapel roads.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
