HEMPFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A dispute between Hempfield Township supervisors and the West Point Volunteer Fire Department over an ear-shattering siren has not gone silent.

The supervisors Monday threatened to remove West Point from Westmoreland County's emergency dispatching system unless the department signs an agreement the supervisors and firefighters reached in October.

If the deal is not signed by Jan. 2, Hempfield will notify Westmoreland County 911 to remove West Point from its call list.
