๐Ÿš‘ Responding to a Challenging Situation with Precision ๐Ÿชฆ

Today, we faced a unique and challenging incident involving an individual who had fallen into an open grave at Holy Cross Cemetery. This unexpected incident required the immediate response of multiple agencies, including the South Brunswick Police, Monmouth Junction Fire Department, Monroe Fire Department, and our own Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad.

Upon arriving at the scene, our dedicated team, including our specialized trench and rescue unit, took careful steps to secure the area. We deployed trench panels and ground pads to stabilize the pit and employed a rope system to safely extract the individual from the open grave.

This complex operation required meticulous planning and coordination, ensuring the safety of the victim and the responders involved.

We are grateful for the seamless teamwork among these agencies, as well as the dedication of our rescue technicians. Thanks to their efforts, the individual was successfully removed from the open grave and transported to the hospital in stable condition.

We want to express our appreciation to all the first responders who played a crucial role in this rescue operation. Your commitment to the safety and well-being of our community is truly commendable.

Incidents like these remind us of the importance of emergency preparedness and the critical role of our emergency services. We are proud to serve our community and are always ready to respond, no matter the nature of the challenge.

๐Ÿฆ‡ **Stay Safe on World Rabies Day: Dealing with Potential Rabid Animal Encounters** ๐Ÿฆ‡

On this World Rabies Day, let's shed light on staying safe in the face of potential encounters with rabid animals, such as bats. Rabies is a serious viral disease that can be transmitted to humans through the bite or scratch of an infected animal. Here are some essential tips to remember if you suspect you've encountered a rabid animal:

1. **Stay Calm:** Encountering a wild animal, especially a bat, can be alarming. Stay calm and avoid panicking. Slowly back away from the animal if it's in your vicinity.
2. **Do Not Touch:** Refrain from touching the animal, especially if it appears sick, disoriented, or is behaving strangely. Keep your distance to reduce the risk of exposure.
3. **Secure Pets:** Ensure that your pets are indoors and have limited contact with wildlife, as they are also vulnerable to rabies.
4. **Don't Chase It Away:** As tempting as it may be to shoo away the animal, avoid doing so. It's important to observe the animal's behavior from a safe distance.
5. **Contact Authorities:** If you find a bat in your home or encounter any wild animal that's acting strangely, contact your local animal control or public health department. They can provide guidance on next steps.
6. **Seek Medical Attention:** If you've had direct contact with a potentially rabid animal, wash the wound thoroughly with soap and water for several minutes and seek medical attention immediately. Rabies is treatable if caught in time.
7. **Capture the Animal Safely (If Possible):** If the animal needs to be tested for rabies, animal control may request its capture. However, do not attempt this if it puts you at risk. Wear gloves and use a box or container to safely contain the animal without touching it.

Remember, prevention is key. Ensure your pets are up-to-date on rabies vaccinations, and be cautious when interacting with wildlife. World Rabies Day reminds us to stay informed and take steps to protect ourselves and our furry friends. Stay safe and spread awareness!

In the heart of Princeton, we stand as custodians of a piece of history that embodies strength, unity, and remembrance. Our town holds the privilege of safeguarding a significant steel fragment from the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks โ€“ a solemn tribute to the lives lost and the indomitable spirit that emerged from the ashes.

As we mark the anniversary of this tragic day, let us pause to reflect on the impact it had on our nation and the world. The Princeton September 11, 2001 Memorial Committee, alongside our community, has worked diligently to create a lasting memorial that respects the memory of those who perished in NYC, The Pentagon, and Shanksville, PA.

This memorial, completed and standing proudly on the grounds of the new Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad building at 2 Mt. Lucas Rd., Princeton, NJ 08540, is a symbol of our enduring commitment to honor, remember, and heal. It stands as a poignant reminder of the strength that can arise from adversity and the unity that binds us all.

We invite you to visit this sacred space, where the glow of our unity shines even in the darkest moments. Let us gather in remembrance and reflection, honoring the lives lost, the heroes who emerged, and the resilience that defines us as a community.

We're proud to highlight an incredible display of teamwork and coordination in our neighboring community. The South Brunswick Police Department, in collaboration with Middles*x County, Princeton, and New Jersey State Police OEM, continues to work diligently on the NTSB investigation following last week's helicopter crash.

In a joint effort, they conducted a comprehensive land and water search for helicopter parts. The Kingston Fire Department, alongside our own PFARS Swift Water Rescue team, played a crucial role in executing this operation.

It's moments like these that remind us of the unwavering commitment of our first responders and the power of community collaboration. Kudos to all involved for their dedication to ensuring safety and finding answers.

Every step counts when it comes to keeping our community safe. This September, join us in raising awareness about falls prevention and taking proactive steps to ensure the well-being of our loved ones. ๐Ÿ’™

**Why Falls Prevention Matters:**

๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธ **Empower Independence**: Preventing falls empowers individuals to maintain their independence and enjoy life to the fullest.

๐Ÿ‘ต **Protect Seniors**: Falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults. By promoting awareness, we can help protect the health and dignity of our senior community members.

๐Ÿ  **Create Safer Homes**: Simple home modifications and safety measures can significantly reduce the risk of falls for people of all ages.

**Tips for Falls Prevention:**

1. **Stay Active**: Regular exercise improves strength, balance, and flexibility, reducing the risk of falls.

2. **Home Safety**: Remove hazards like loose rugs and ensure proper lighting to create a safe living environment.

3. **Medication Management**: Review medications with a healthcare provider to minimize side effects that could increase fall risk.

4. **Vision Check**: Regular eye check-ups can help maintain good vision and prevent stumbles.

5. **Footwear Matters**: Choose supportive and non-slip footwear for better stability.

6. **Stay Hydrated**: Dehydration can affect balance and coordination, so drink plenty of water.

7. **Annual Check-ups**: Regular health check-ups can help identify and manage underlying health conditions that may contribute to falls.

At PFARS, we're committed to promoting safety and well-being in our community. Let's work together to prevent falls and ensure a brighter, healthier future for all. Share these tips with your loved ones and let's make Falls Prevention Month a success! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒŸ
