National Night Out

National Night Out is Tuesday, August 2nd! Host a neighborhood block party or turn your porch light on, sit out and talk with your neighbors. Have fun and get to know your community.

CPR CLASSES

The Swissvale Fire Department recently sent several firefighters to be trained and certified as CPR instructors.  The department now has six certified instructors that can teach and certify the public in First Aid and CPR.  In our continued efforts to serve our community, we will begin holding CPR training and certification classes for the public.  CPR classes for Borough residents will be held free of charge.  Classes may be scheduled for other groups or businesses for a nominal fee.

There will be a community CPR class held at the Swissvale Fire Station on Saturday August 6 from 9am to 2pm. This class will focus on teaching lay person CPR and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).  If you are interested in taking this class call the Swissvale Fire Department at 412-271-0448.  The fire department will need your name, e-mail address, and a phone number where you can be easily reached.

Please check this website periodically for class date announcements.  If your organization would like to arrange for a class, please contact Assistant Fire Chief Deleonibus at 412-271-0448.
