We would like to remind all residents of Washington Township (actually all areas) to lock your vehicles and remove all items of value from them. We had several entries in to unlocked vehicles through Thursday night in to Friday, May 22. Cash, wallets, credit cards were all stolen from those unlocked vehicles. The Thieves even stole a car from a driveway that had the keys left in it. Again, Please lock your cars and remove anything of value from them. Do not become a victim of opportunity.

Thanks for the much needed supplies Axon.  #Axon #gotyoucovered

We would like to thank Polyconcept (PCNA) for the gifts today. We were supplied with backpacks, portable phone charges, stainless steel drink bottles and hand sanitizer. All of them contained our police logo. A very nice gesture from a business in Washington Township!

Anytime someone needs help – when they are scared, when they have an emergency, when they are at their most vulnerable – they can call 911 and a telecommunicator will answer. At any hour of the day or night, telecommunicators answer our calls. They will be professional, kind, compassionate, and they will send help when we need it. Telecommunicators represent the heart of the vital system that knits our communities and our nation together.

You are the lifeline to many, especially to us.

Thank You for all you do!

Tonight, Officer Hollis of the Washington Township Police and Director Gerano of Murrysville Medic One were recognized by the Washington Township Supervisors for a an of valor during a house fire on February 28, 2019. They were the first ones to arrive at the fire, and were advised by 911 that elderly man lived there, and may still be inside. Director Gerano and Officer Hollis, without regard for their own safety, made entry into the house and located the man. They pulled him to safety where CPR was immediately rendered. Although the man succumbed to his injuries, Director Gerano and Officer Hollis acted above and beyond the call of duty.

Shout out to Murrysville Medic One!  The Township is lucky to have a top notch EMS service like yours!

We hope this will answer some of the questions we have been receiving about fireworks.

Q: Which fireworks are Pennsylvania residents now allowed to purchase and use?

Consumers can now purchase and use “Class C” or “consumer-grade” fireworks that include firecrackers, Roman Candles, bottle rockets, and similar fireworks that contain a maximum of 50 milligrams of explosive material. The expansion includes those fireworks that were previously only available to out-of-state residents.

“Display fireworks,” which are classified as including salutes that contain more than two grains or 130 milligrams of explosive materials, and professional-grade aerial shells containing more than 60 grams of pyrotechnic compositions, are still only to be used by professionals with a permit from the municipality where the display will take place.

Q: Who can purchase fireworks?
Anyone 18 years of age or older can purchase them.

Q: What are the restrictions on where they can be used?
· They cannot be ignited or discharged on a public or private property without express permission of the property owner.
· They cannot be discharged from or within a motor vehicle or building.
· They cannot be discharged toward a motor vehicle or building.
· They cannot be discharged within 150 feet of an occupied structure.
· They cannot be discharged while the person is under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance, or another drug.
Also, it is recommended that you check with your local municipality, as you may also be subject to applicable local ordinances.

Q: Where can the fireworks be purchased?
They can be purchased at any licensed facility, including temporary ones. The licenses are issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Examples of temporary facilities include tents or other structures found in parking lots. These temporary structures can sell fireworks between the dates of June 15-July 8, and December 21-January 2 each year.

The Washington Township Police Department would like to thank the residents of Washington Acres for their generous support. Not only did they provide us with a tree, (decorated with homemade ornaments made by the children), they also bought the dinner for our Christmas party, brought homemade cookies, and gave us all wonderful gifts.

We like to give a special shout out to Madison Porter for organizing this project.

We are truly blessed to work in such a great community.

It is that time of year again that we need to warn you about paving scams. The Washington Township Police Department is beginning to see signs that transient criminal groups aiming to defraud our residents are again beginning to filter into the area. It is important that you not only look out for yourself but for your neighbors as well, especially the elderly. Remember, people going door to door in Washington Township, trying to sell things, must have a permit in almost all cases. If they do not have one visible, ask to see one. If they do not have one, dial 911 and an officer will come out to make sure this isn’t a scam. We need to keep everyone safe, especially our most vulnerable ones!
Here are seven asphalt paving warning signs:

1) Selling door-to-door: Reputable asphalt contractors will sometimes offer their services if they are doing a legitimate job in the immediate area. Always ask for references

2) Claiming they have leftover asphalt from another job: Professional asphalt contractors will know, with great accuracy, how much paving material is needed to complete a project. Rarely will they have leftover material. Some of the reasons a contractor might have left over material are due to weather, equipment problems, cancellations and etc.

3) Push you to make a quick decision: Reputable contractors will provide a written estimate that will be valid for weeks or months. If the great deal they are offering you today is not available tomorrow or next week it may be a scam.

4) No contract offered: Insist upon a written contract specifying in detail, the work to be performed and the agreed upon price.
5) Cash only sales: Most reputable contractors take checks or credit cards and don’t require cash-only terms.

6) Deals that seem to be good to be true: If the quoted price seems very low, chances are the quality of the work will also be quite low.

7) Unmarked truck: Often the trucks they travel in are unmarked or they have an out of town address and phone number. A little research will reveal that they have no permanent address and the phone number is often an answering machine.

Maintaining Trees and Vegetation

West Penn Power will be sending out post cards in your area notifying customers that we will be performing tree trimming and removal, brush clearing and herbicide application, as needed along electric line rights-of-way on the Wallace Lane Circuit. The Wallace Lane Circuit is approximately 38 circuit miles located in Plum Borough, Upper Burrell Township, Washington Township and Murrysville. Penn Line will be the contractor performing this work.

Trees are a leading cause of electrical power outages. In fact when trees and power lines touch it creates a very dangerous situation that may even be deadly to anyone in close proximity.
