I am so impressed with the Ligonier fire and police teams, Beaufort Service and Peoples gas.

We had a gas leak in our building this morning.  I called the gas company and they said to evacuate our building and they would have someone out within the hour.  Our landlord, Marcy Snyder, also suggested that we alert the fire department so we called 911.  A state police officer and a local police officer came immediately to secure the District Court building next door as they evacuated, too.  A fireman came right up from his work at Agway - checked the odor, alerted the Chief and within a very short time our block was sealed off.  A Beaufort Service crew came immediately when they heard it on the scanner.  They do the work in our building. We had two fire trucks, an EMS unit and lots of drama awaiting the gas company rep when he arrived.  He was able to determine that we had leaks but that it was safe enough for the emergency crews to leave.

I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THEIR SPEEDY RESPONSE AND FOR MAKING SURE THAT EVERYONE WAS SAFE.  GOOD JOB!!
