The Municipality of Penn Hills recently purchase the old Penn Hebron School from the Penn Hills School District located at 102 Duff Rd. This site is projected to be the home of the new Penn Hills Municipal Safety Complex. While plans were firmed up on the building, the Penn Hills Fire Departments were given access to the building for Fire & Rescue training. This was a “once in a lifetime opportunity” and the Penn Hills Fire Departments are grateful, and we took full advantage of the property. During this time, numerous training classes and fire company drill nights took place logging over 500hrs in training alone.
