On Saturday, January 31, 2009, Lynbrook Junior Fire Department Captain Kara McLaughlin was honored by the Lynbrook Fire Department at the Nassau County Junior Firefighters Association where Kara has just completed her term as first vice-president of the association. As she is turning 18 soon, she will be leaving the juniors program and the county association and joining the Lynbrook Fire Department. Her father is a member of the department. Captain McLaughlin was presented the plaque by Lynbrook Chief John OíReilly.
