Safety Unites Us


Safety is our number one job

In the municipality of Mt. Lebanon, safety has always been a top priority for us, from the way we care for your children during recreation activities to the way we educate your family about fire safety. During the COVID-19 pandemic, that culture of safety has carried us through difficult times. We continue to demonstrate how we care for our residents and employees every day by the preventative steps we take and the way we have re-imagined municipal government.
