What emergency preparedness plans does the Town have?

The Town of McCandless has developed an Emergency Management Plan to assist and protect residents should a catastrophe occur. All emergency service providers are an integral part of the Town's Emergency Management Plan. The plan includes provisions for warning notifications to be transmitted to residents via available media outlets, such as KDKA radio and by public safety vehicles equipped with public address systems.

The plan also offers provisions of food, water, and shelter to emergency or disaster related events. Fire Marshal Jeff Wissner is the emergency management coordinator for the Town. Any resident who has a question pertaining to emergency management situations or who has an interest in assisting, identifying, and providing resources that may be used during emergency situations, can call him at 412-364-0616, ext. 128.
