Rehab Responds to Springfield

Monday June 11, 2012 Shortly after 6:30pm, Rehab 439 was dispatched to 105 Columbus Jobstown Road in Springfield on the second alarm dwelling fire.  Chief 2130 had arrived on location and found a 2 1/2 story single family dwelling with heavy fire in the second floor and rear. The fire quickly progressed throughout the home and command requested the second alarm as well as a tender strike team due to the lack of fire hydrants.  Rehab 4399 arrived and was placed in a neighbors driveway. The crew from 4399 setup the rehab equipment on the neighbors front lawn and stood-by until being released by command. This fire took a tragic turn however when the body of the homeowner was located inside the home. The Tabernacle Rescue Squad would like to send our condolences to the family and friends of the victim as well as the Springfield & Plainsboro Fire Companies for their loss. The cause of the fire is under investigation.


Happy Memorial Day

There is a popular saying in the United States that expresses gratitude for the service of members of the military. "Freedom isn't Free" implicitly states that the freedoms enjoyed by many citizens in the U.S. are only possible through the voluntary risks taken and sacrifices made by the military.

Please join us in thanking all the members of the military that are serving, have served, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving to protect our Freedom.



Pregnancy and Childbirth Training

Wednesday, May 23, 2012 This evening around 7:30 P.M. member from the Tabernacle Rescue Squad, Shamong EMS, and Pemberton First Aid Squad gathered in the training room of station 439 to learn about pregnancy and childbirth. The class began with a short Jeopardy session where members were quizzed on their knowledge of pregnancy and childbirth. After the Jeopardy session completed everyone was broken into two groups and brought through several skill stations. These stations included a prolapsed cord , assisted ventilation's on a neo-nate, and the real birth of a baby using a real life manikin. This manikin through the use of a motor and other functions allows members to get a realistic experience of child delivery. A lot of knowledge was gained through this training and it gave many of us the opportunity to brush up on a seldom used skill.

Happy EMS Week 2012

The Tabernacle Rescue Squad will be celebrating their Emergency Medical Service providers the week of May 20-26, 2012, for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week. Each year, a week is designated to recognize the value and accomplishments of emergency medical services providers, nation-wide.

In Tabernacle Twp. and throughout the country, emergency medical services teams are ready at a moment’s notice to provide lifesaving care to those in need, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Having that kind of immediate access to emergency care has been proven to greatly increase the survival and recovery rates of those with a sudden illness or injury. EMS systems consist of many parts, some of which include: emergency physicians, emergency nurses, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, firefighters, educators, dispatchers and administrators. Members of emergency medical services teams is Sandy Springs go through thousands of hours of specialized training and continuing education to enhance their lifesaving skills. Please take the time during EMS Week 2012 to recognize your local emergency medical services providers and to reflect on these few summer safety tips.

* Be smart. Don’t text and drive. No text message is worth the potential for a vehicle accident.

* Be healthy. Drink enough water. Don’t suffer from dehydration this summer. Inadequate hydration can lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

* Be secure. Install a fence at least four-feet high around all four sides of the pool and keep a close eye on children near a pool. Simple steps can prevent drowning. '

* Be safe. Wearing a helmet and other safety gear, while riding a bicycle or motorcycle, can prevent serious injury.

* Be cool. Don’t get sunburned. Limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen. Doing so can help you avoid painful sunburns.




The National Weather Service announces plans for the Commercial Mobile Alert Service

The National Weather Service (NWS) has announced it plans in May to begin using the Commercial Mobile Alert Service(CMAS), also known as Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA). The CMAS/WEA enables alert originators to send geographically targeted alert messages to mobile devices across the country, currently to a space as small as a county. Though local and state emergency management offices are able to originate alerts (and have been signing up with FEMA to do so), many expect the NWS to originate the vast majority of all CMAS messages sent, due to its role in alerts and warnings around weather events.

According to the NWS  they will issue CMAS/WEA alerts for initial issuance of the following warning types:

  • Tsunami Warnings
  • Tornado Warnings
  • Flash Flood Warnings
  • Extreme Wind Warnings
  • Hurricane and Typhoon Warnings
  • Blizzard Warnings
  • Ice Storm Warnings
  • Dust Storm Warnings

Initially -- to avoid "over-warning," Severe Thunderstorm Warnings will NOT be included in this list. Customers will have the ability to opt out of the weather warnings.
