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 will begin 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.
