Laflin Borough will complete storm sewer repairs and resurface select borough roads under a state grant from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). The Local Share Account grant awarded to Laflin Borough was made available from the Gaming Act of 2004 for the purpose of distributing revenues collected from Mohegan Sun Casinos.
The following roads will be milled and paved with storm sewer repairs under the LSA Grant starting this summer:
East Ashwood Drive
Please contact the borough office (570) 654-3323 or our borough engineer Joe Mullen, Pennoni Associates Inc. (570) 235-2951 with any questions regarding this project. The project was awarded and should commence in the next few weeks.

The Laflin Fire Department mailed it’s yearly fund drive letter Friday 1/30/15. The department desperately needs financial help! A copy of the letter is below:
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We are again asking for your help with our yearly fund drive.
The Laflin Volunteer Fire Department provides you with fire protection and rescue services 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. The volunteers of the Laflin Fire Dept. responded to 230 fire, rescue and public service calls in 2014, the busiest year in our history. In December 2014 we had our busiest month ever, responding to 34 alarms. The volunteers also gave countless hours for fundraising, attending meetings and training.
Thanks to those residents who donated to our past drives.
In the past 2 years, the Laflin Fire Department has incurred significant debt to purchase our new Chevy Tahoe Quick Response Unit in 2014 and to replace our 1992 Engine with our KME Rescue Pumper. In 2014 we also added a Haul mark Trailer filled with large quantities of oil dry and absorbent pads, many gas and electric pumps, generators, brush fire gear, and much more. This unit can be hauled to any large scale incident by our QRS unit giving the volunteers easy access to needed equipment.
Last year the Fund Drive grossed $18,250 with a goal of $25,000. Our annual budget exceeds $40,000, insurance alone is over $9,000 yearly and our payments for our 2 new vehicles are over $20,000 yearly. We received a $21,000 Federal Grant last year for 10 sets of coats and pants; we apply for every grant available to keep the cost of fire protection as low as possible. The cost of fire equipment has sky rocketed, it costs over $8000.00 to outfit 1 fireman with a coat, pants, a helmet, gloves and an air pack.
The department operates almost solely on your donations!
Please visit us at www.laflinfire.com and on Facebook for much more information on your fire department, Included there is contact information, information on our members and equipment, call info, and year in review videos of our activity.
In order for us to be able to provide you and your loved ones with the services you deserve, we need your financial support. We are asking each family and business to make a tax deductible contribution of $55.00 per family and $150.00 per business. If you can give more, we would be deeply grateful.
Please consider your donation today.
“Today we need your help. Tomorrow you may need ours! “
Thank you for your generosity,
Members of the

The results are in! The Laflin Volunteer Fire Department has soared to a 5 rating from ISO, a fire department rating agency that provides ratings to insurance companies in setting fire insurance rates. There are 2864 fire departments rated in Pennsylvania, the highest percentage are 737 departments with a rating of 9. To put
this in perspective of how difficult it is to achieve the highest score of 1, Plains Township was just issued a 4 after many upgrades to their training and equipment and the addition of their
new ladder truck, putting them with other cities like Bethlehem, Kingston, Scranton and Erie. Wilkes Barre has the highest local rating at 3, joining just 25 others in Pa with a 3. All of these departments have a 24/7 paid staff. Only 1 Pa department has a 1, and 2 Pa Departments have a 2 rating.
Laflin Fire Chief Marc Malvizzi said: “This is a testament to the hard work of the Laflin Volunteers who strive for excellence with training, equipment and safety. With over 2000 hours of training in the last two years alone, most Pro Board Certified FF1, FF2, and Haz Mat courses, and equipment upgrades of a new QRS/Brush unit in 2011, and a Rescue Pumper in 2012, the LVFD stands ready to serve Laflin and surrounding communities with the best in fire protection”.
