How you can help keep your neighborhood safe this winter.
The Upper St. Clair Volunteer Fire Department issued a reminder to residents on its new Facebook page to keep neighborhood fire hydrants clear of snow. As we all are aware, the snow has started to consistently fall. To help us execute our duties on the fire scene in a timely manner, we ask you to do your best to keep the area around fire hydrants clear of snow. This will help us to locate and use the hydrants immediately instead of us searching and digging them out. Your help is greatly appreciated throughout the winter season!
