Ramsey April 8, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES IV • Page 7 The members of the Ramsey Rescue Squad thank borough residents and business owners for their generosity during the squad’s recent fund drive. The funds have been used to purchase and equip a chief’s vehicle at no expense to the borough. The squad will also use donated funds to host an intensive, 40-hour confined space rescue course. Ramsey Rescue also received a donation of three defibrillators from The Greater Ramsey Chapter of UNICO, and turnout gear for the first responders from the Junior Donations finance chief’s vehicle, training course Woman’s Club of Ramsey. Both organizations held highly successful Casino Nights at the Ramsey Knights of Columbus. “The RRS would also like to recognize David Emde of King Crash and NAR Towing, Inc, who not only tows junked cars for us, but allows us to train at his facility for vehicle entrapment and extrication,” said RRS President Michael Adams. “We would also like to thank the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance of Mahwah, for the donation of 50 new chairs for our meeting room.” The squad acknowledges that the borough has severe budgetary constraints, and is working with the mayor and council to ensure that the RRS has the proper training and equipment without unnecessarily burdening the taxpayers. “Last year, we were able to use $10,000 in FEMA funding to replace worn out equipment and turnout gear,” Adams added. The RRS also welcomes the Ramsey residents, of all ages, who have recently joined Ramsey OEM and/or the Ramsey Rescue Squad. Any resident who wants to join may call Ramsey Borough Hall at (201) 825-3400, extension 420, for additional information. Chocolate Making Birthday Parties Are Our Specialty Chocolate Etc...

The squad would hold extrication drills, disassemble the vehicles, sweep up the mess, and Emde would tow them to a junkyard. Emde then offered to let the squad train at his facility on Grant Street. Currently, the yard is storing 16 cars, waiting for future vehicle extrication drills.
