Emergency Response Follow-up

The Piermont Fire Department and Emergency Management visited neighborhoods at Lake Armington, including Sirecho Shores and Cottage Roads, so they're better able to locate the properties at the lake promptly in case of an emergency call. They also brought in their pumper truck to scout how well it could handle the narrow roads and where it could turn around.

 

E911 Program in Piermont

In 2015 the nationwide E911 program begins its roll-out in Piermont to upgrade emergency services and improve reliability and response time. Many addresses and property numbers all over town will be changed to achieve consistency, including those at the lake. Bernie Marvin, Emergency Management Director, is in charge of the program.
