By Secretary Mike Cline
November 30, 2021

At ~2:50 PM, Westmoreland 911 dispatched Station 20 (Murrysville VFC) to assist Stations 87 (Harrison City VFC) and Station 63 (Claridge VFC) for a report of an odor of natural gas on Wedgewood Drive, Penn Township. Station 20 responded with Truck 20 (4 firefighters including Assistant Chief 20) which was on a nearby training exercise, and 5 firefighters on station standby with Engine 20. After surveying the area, the responding fire units found no evidence of natural gas in area, and it was determined that a mercaptan release at the nearby landfill was the probable cause of the odor within the neighborhood. Command 63 returned all responding units including Truck 20 returned to service and station.

Units: Truck 20, Engine 20
 
Mutual Aid: Claridge VFC (Station 63 - Engine 63), Harrison City VFC (Station 87 - Engine 87)
