HEMPFIELD, Pa. — Hempfield supervisors, trying to defuse growing tension between residents of West Point and its volunteer fire department, will buy and install a new control system that will shorten the time the fire siren sounds in the neighborhood.
The new control system will reduce the duration of the alarm from two minutes to one.
