I wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank local police, fire, EMS, public works and emergency management personnel for their exemplary performance during the Hurricane Sandy emergency.
Both career and volunteer personnel worked long, tiring hours preparing for, responding to and cleaning up after the storm. Fire, rescue and EMS personnel provided many volunteer hours serving their community.
In Wyoming, our volunteer fire department staffed both stations and provided an additional paramedic unit in addition to a volunteer EMS crew. Our department of public works worked throughout the weekend clearing leaves from the roadways, keeping drains clear during the storm emergency and preparing for the cleanup afterwards. Our police department had extra personnel on duty to assist during storm-related emergencies.
Finally, I must acknowledge and thank the residents of Wyoming and surrounding communities for their cooperation and assistance during this emergency. Residents helped their neighbors in preparing for the storm, cooperated with curfews and other emergency instructions. Many people volunteered their time and energy to assist during this storm.
On behalf of Borough Council and myself, we appreciate the effort shown by everyone. Clearly, by working together as a community, we can overcome difficult circumstances together.
Mayor Robert Boyer
