The driveway out of Fire Station #1 in my town has a large and long heated pad. The main boiler for the large municipal building, of which the fire station is a part, supplies the heat for the pipes in the pad. No electrical elements to burn out and replace.
Just pipes to leak...

I hope they are pushing anti-freeze if/when the heat is off.

I do wonder about the poor word choice for the linked article,  especially since the poor dog wasn't a stray.....
Those "stray voltages" wander around the city looking for trouble.
It's shocking... ;D

As for sidewalk heaters, we lived in an apartment building  in Toronto,and the ramp from the underground garage was heated.
It doesn't take much to melt the ice or snow.

We have 2 floors in our current house that are electrically heated and the controller has a GFCI function that can be easily tested.
