Police Department Info
Reminder! Summer is
almost here, and those of us that have swimming pools in our back yards will
soon be opening them up for the season. Around this time of year your
Police Department begins receiving complaint calls from residents about
neighbors who are draining their pools into the street, or onto another’s
yard. Pool water, with the chemicals it holds, can damage grasses and
plants. It is also against City ordinance to drain a pool anywhere except
a sanitary sewer system, where that water can be treated. City code, Section 225.020 states that “ . . .the discharge of swimming pool
water or backwash other than into a sanitary sewer system” is prohibited.
pool vendor may not tell you this, because it is easier and cheaper for them to
discharge the water where ever they can do so quickly. Please keep an eye
on your pool vendor this Spring, so that police are not called to issue a

Fire Department Info
fire in a high rise building is a rare occurrence, but area firefighters spent
last week training for just such an occasion. The Clayton Fire
Department hosted a high angle rope rescue class for firefighters
from Clayton, Brentwood,Crestwood, Frontenac, Kirkwood, Maplewood, University City
and St. Louis City.
firefighters learned how to rescue people from high places using rescue ropes.
The training included mock drills on how to get people up and down narrow
spaces, like elevator shafts.
Frontenac Fire Department has a new Facebook page, Firefighters of Frontenac.
Please like their page.
City of Frontenac would like to thank all the residents who came out and
