Third Annual Passaic – Clifton Community Wide Health and Safety Fair
On Sunday, June 6, 2010, Hatzolah of Passaic/Clifton EMS and the Bikur Cholim of Passaic-Clifton once again hosted a Health and Safety Fair for the community. Crowd estimates ranged from 1500-2000 attendees. Attendees were able to browse more than 30 booths relating to their personal health and safety. Many health screenings were provided free of charge, such as vision, glucose, dental, scoliosis, blood pressure and more. There were even booths dealing with computer/internet safety! Children received balloons and everyone was able to enjoy free healthy snacks- bottled water, fresh fruit and hot popcorn. For a full report and photos, click here.
Pharmacalogy Class Given by Hackensack University Medical Center
On Thursday April 29th, the Members of Hatzolah had a continuing education class on Pharmacology presented by a Paramedic from Hackensack University Medical Center.
The goal of the class was to help our emergency responders better identify a patient’s medical history based upon their currently prescribed medications which in turn, would likely create a better understanding of presenting symptoms during an emergency call for help. The class presenter reviewed a myriad list of Prescription Medications and their associated uses. The class was very well received and appreciated by the Hatzolah membership.
Hatzolah of Passaic/Clifton would like to thank Mr. Glenn MacDonald of Hackensack University Medical Center for arranging this particular class at no cost to Hatzolah. Hatzolah would also like to thank Mr. Breyer of Kosher Konnection for donating refreshments for the class.
With the recent changes to the State of NJ EMT Training Fund, many of our Continuing Education Classes will no longer be covered by the State. Please visit www.hatzolahpassaic.net/support.html to donate online or call our office at 973-685-4911 to help fund future training classes. Dedication opportunities are available for classes to be sponsored in Honor/Memory or L’Refuah Sheleima of a loved one.
