EMS Helipad built at Hegins Twp. complex

Kenneth Graham, assistant Hegins Township EMS Coordinator, members of the local Boy Scout Troop and private citizens have donated money and time to construct a helipad at the township complex, off of Gap Street in Valley View.

"This was needed," said Graham. "We were running out of space to land helicopters here in the valley. We recently had a woman who was severely hurt and we had no place to land a medivac helicopter."
