At ~1:18 PM, Westmoreland 911 dispatched Station 20 (Murrysville VFC) for a report of a downed utility line near a home on Meadowbrook Road. Station 20 responded with Engine 20 (3 firefighter including Captain 20). Upon arrival at the scene, Captain 20 established command, and found that a Cable TV service line had been pulled down during the tree fall at the same location ~14 hours earlier. The Cable TV Service Line was not in the roadway, and did not endanger the occupants of the home. Command 20 relayed the location to Westmoreland 911 so a COMCAST Repair Crew could be dispatched to the site to repair the cable line. Command 20 returned Engine 20 to service and station.

Units: Engine 20
