On Sunday morning, our crews were out in Kittatinny Valley State Park supporting the Friend2Friend - Sussex County Area NJ Chili Challenge Run, a cause we’ve been a part of for about a decade and a half now. BLS 4351 and 4353 were assigned to cover the event, but with two simultaneous medical calls during the run, BLS 4352 staffed up as well to assist with volume so one ambulance could remain at the standby. Before the morning was out, all three crews got to catch a quick picture with F2F Director Mare Galeos. Congratulations on another great event, Mare! ...

Just after 19:00 this evening, Byram Twp Fire Department and 43 Rescue were alerted by Sussex County Sheriffs 911 Center for a 3 car MVC on Route 206 in the area of BTFD and LES Headquarters. The initial request was for two BLS, which was upgraded to three, and finally all four ambulances were called to the scene for transports. Aside from the one crew on duty, the rest of these volunteers stepped away from their families, left their dinners, and delayed evening plans to staff the other apparatus. BLS 4351, 4352, 4353, 4355, & FRU 4358 all responded to the accident tonight.

Thanks to the beauty of technology, we were quickly reminded that exactly two years ago to the day, all four of our ambulances also responded to an accident on this night in 2016 (pictured).

We are so fortunate to have such a dedicated team of EMTs to work with and would love to have you join us in serving our communities! Apply today at www.lakelandems.org/join.
