Hands Only CPR

One quarter of Americans say they’ve been in a situation where someone needed CPR. If you were one of them, would you know what to do?

When an adult has a sudden cardiac arrest, his or her survival depends greatly on immediately getting CPR from someone nearby. Unfortunately, less than 1/3 of those people who experience a cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location get that help. Most bystanders are worried that they might do something wrong or make things worse. That’s why the AHA has simplified things.

It’s not normal to see an adult suddenly collapse, but if you do, call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest. Don’t be afraid. Your actions can only help. Increasing the number of people who know about Hands-Only CPR will increase the chance that someone can help when an adult suddenly collapses, and more lives can be saved.

Check out the video below to see Hands-Only CPR in action.

 

New Building Update

We are getting closer and closer to moving into our new home!  Over the past week or so we have continued to see significant progress in the building. We now have electric and water turned on. A majority of the restroom fixtures have been installed. The gear racks and the Exhaust system have arrived and been installed in the engine bay. Also the majority of the drop ceilings have been installed as well. The kitchen cabinets are mounted as well as the cabinets in the training room and radio rooms. The parking lot light poles have gone up and the engine bay heat is up and running. Tiling has been completed in the women's restroom and we continue to see progress on the fire alarm systems. At this point we are hoping to see the majority of the project complete by the end of this month. Unfortunately due to 2011 being the wettest year on record the project is slightly behind schedule. However the contractors are working extremely hard to get the project finished and make our dream become a reality.  It will hopefully be another month or so until we can move here for good!!!

Rehab 4398 Update

It has been a while since we have provided any updates on our new rehab truck. This past Monday Chief George Jackson III and Special Operations Captain George Jackson Jr. headed over to Steve Flanagan's Auto & Truck Service of NJ in Pennsauken to see the progress on the truck and to layout the paint break on the cab. The truck has been sanded and should be getting painted soon. Both officers were impressed by the work that has already been completed on the truck. We can't wait to get the truck back and begin to get it ready for service. Stay tuned for more updates!

Tabernacle Rescue Squad Helps Out Santa

December 22, 2011 This morning the Tabernacle Rescue Squad got a special request from the one and only Santa Clause. Santa asked if we would be able to help him make a surprise visit to Olson Middle School.  The members were glad to assist and we helped Santa onto R4399. With Lights and Sirens blaring Santa was delivered for everyone to see. Santa spent sometime visiting the people of Olson Middle School before returning to the North Pole to get ready for Christmas.
