Message from Greater Pittston Regional Ambulance:
The Laflin Borough Council has recently appointed the Greater Pittston Regional Ambulance to be the primary EMS provider/ambulance service for Laflin. We are very excited to serve Laflin. Laflin was a charter community upon our Organization’s founding back in 1952, so we are very excited to return to serve one of our original communities, and provide prompt, quality, safe, and reliable EMS care.
We are a community-based non-profit organization. We maintain two stations, including our headquarters in downtown Pittston. We have multiple professional crews on duty 24 hours a day. We provide advanced life support (paramedic service) along with basic life support care, with a fleet of seven ambulance units, along with multiple support vehicles. We have special operations resources and capabilities, and look forward to working hand-in-hand with your Laflin Volunteer Fire Company.
As a particular interest to residents, we are pleased to offer our annual subscription program. This program allows you to subscribe to our ambulance service for a small annual fee. If ambulance service is needed, any charges not covered by your health insurance plan will be waived.
In this informational packet, we are providing you with the opportunity to subscribe to our service. We have several different subscription plans to fit the needs of your family. Your subscription not only protects your family any time that you need ambulance service, but also serves as a needed revenue source for our organization to allow us to continue to ensure our financial stability.
As a non-profit provider that relies on no taxpayer funds to operate, we continue to depend on you to support our mission. We ask that you consider subscribing to our organization to ensure that there will be a well-equipped, staffed community-based non-profit ambulance serving the Borough for many years to come.
