Brush Fire Increase During COVID-19

During this Covid-19 virus Allegheny Township realizes our First Responders are a critical asset to the municipality. We are continuing to explore options and ways to protect them from this
virus so they are there to serve our citizens when necessary.

The PA. Department of Health and the CDC continue to indicate that separation is the most effective deterrent to the spread of this disease. Our Fire Departments (Allegheny VFC and Markle VFD) have ceased all fund raising and social events at their facilities to follow these recommended guidelines. They continue to review their response guidelines in an attempt to better serve the citizens and to protect each responder.

In review of the fire call volumes for March 2020 in comparison to March of 2019, there has been a 700% increase in brush fires. This is an unacceptable and preventable increase that continues to jeopardize the health and welfare of our first responders.

Under Chapter 81 of the Allegheny Township ordinance;

Outdoor burning must be constantly attended by an adult having at hand the means to
extinguish the fire.

We are expecting a beautiful weekend and assume there will be a lot of yard work taking place. We are asking please think before you burn, have a hose available to wet the surround area,
and keep the fire contained. When the burning is complete extinguish the ambers before leaving.

Under Chapter 81 of the Ordinance, if necessary, the Township can institute a complete no-burn ban. Additionally, the Township can issue citation(s) to any person who violates this chapter. Any person convicted of this summary offense shall be punishable of a fine not more than $1000.00

Remember we are all in this together, Stay Calm, Stay Home, Stay Safe!
