Lakeland Emergency Squad

A Sussex County first! Thanks for being such a great partner for us, Sussex County Sheriffs 911 Center!Byram Township First to Have All Emergency Services Location Monitored Real Time by County 9-1-1 Center

As of April 10, 2018, all the Byram Township Emergency Services are Sharing Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) data with the Sussex County 9-1-1 Center. Byram Township is the first municipality serviced by the Sussex County Sheriff’s 911 Communications center to utilize real time tracking of Byram Township Police Department, Byram Twp Fire Department and Lakeland Emergency Squad vehicles.

AVL data is transmitted directly to the county’s dispatch system where the information is immediately plotted on a map of the county for both dispatchers and field units to see. All Byram Township emergency services are also using the county’s mobile dispatching software solution, which also enables them to directly receive real time information about the calls they are responding to, providing another safety feature for Byram Township’s first responder. With real time AVL data, dispatchers can leverage the “quickest route” and “closest unit” features of the dispatch software enabling help to arrive more quickly in emergency situations.

Director Mark Rozek would like to thank Police Chief Pete Zabita, Fire Chief Todd Rudloff and EMS Chief John Cubberly, who were all instrumental in making this resource available to their staff.

The addition of all of Byram’s emergency services to the county’s AVL tracking system supplements the agencies already utilizing this service, including the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office, the Sussex County Fire Marshal, Atlantic Health System, Saint Clare’s Health System (paramedics) and the Hampton Township Fire & Rescue

All too often we hear of or see the importance of rehab get downplayed on the 🔥 scene or pushed aside as an after thought. We’re just going to leave this right here... 😉 We do what we do for a reason - everyone goes home.Firefighters often go from sleeping to on scene of an emergency in just a few minutes. Pictured here is a watch reading of a Local 37 firefighter's heart rate through an early morning fire. The white portion is the sleeping heart rate of 40-50 bpm, the red portion is the initial alarm wake up where the firefighters heart rate jumped to 141 bpm, the last multicolored portion is the elevated heart rate throughout the fire where the heart rate consistently stayed over 100 bpm. Cardiac related events are the number one cause of fatalities in the fire service. #Service #SpringfieldsBravest #YourLocalFireDept #SFDLocal37onTheJob
