We would like to use this space to publicly thank and offer our heartfelt gratitude to the three branches of the Laflin Borough Emergency Services Personnel. We recently had a fire situation at our residence. Fortunately, it turned out to be only minor. The quick response of said emergency organization was a blessing. Their professionalism was superb. After they said things were under control and out, they stayed a while and continued to make sure we were alright and not in need of further assistance. To those in the borough beefing about the alleged proposed tax increase to fund the full-time police force, wake up and see the value in it. Again a â??thank youâ? to all who came to our aid.
