At ~11:32 AM, Westmorland 911 dispatched Station 20 (Murrysville VFC) for a tree into the Utility Lines on Staymates Court. Station 20 responded with Squad 20 (2 firefighters), and Lieutenant 20 went directly to the scene. Upon arrival it was found that a dead tree was laying on the Telephone and Cable TV lines, but there was no apparent line breakage. Lieutenant 20 gave the nearest utility pole number to 911 and requested that WIndstream and Xfinity be notified. Squad 20's crew marked the tree with hazard tape to identify it for the utility companies. Lieutenant 20 released Squad 20 for return to station.
