This chapter is not intended to restrict, prevent or limit either fire company from providing additional fire response, as necessary, or as may be requested or required, beyond the territorial boundaries established herein and/or as may be necessary or required for proper fire response procedures and protocol. Rather, this chapter is intended only to generally establish the territorial fire districts within which the volunteer fire companies in Allegheny Township will respond to 911 alarm calls.
